An outline QPAC-initiated programming
The Royal Ballet has returned to London following its exclusive visit to Queensland for the 2017 QPAC International Series and their season heralded a resounding success.
The Royal Ballet’s time with us was more than what you saw on stage and as you will read below, The Royal Ballet and QPAC worked together on a range of programs and events as part of the 2017 QPAC International Series to provide opportunities for them to connect more broadly with our community.
The QPAC International Series is about bringing the world’s best arts companies to perform exclusively in Queensland. This is great for audiences and this year, allowed more than 21,000 people to engage with the company through performances in Brisbane and Cairns to amplify the impact and legacy of this program.
Below are some of the ways The Royal Ballet was immersed in our community during their stay in Queensland:
This season by The Royal Ballet has been a highlight on QPAC’s events calendar for 2017. The success is thanks to many, including our audiences who have told us that this season was ‘extraordinary in every aspect’ and a ‘masterpiece’. We have been heartened by your response as has The Royal Ballet who were amazed at the generosity and warmth of our Queensland audiences.

“This is a masterpiece entirely – so much to absorb – needs to be seen by all. Outstanding choreography, music, sets and every brilliant dancer perfectly cast. Ovations well deserved. This Royal Ballet tour has been professional perfection. Thank you for bringing the tour to our shores – most grateful.”
“Once occasionally in a lifetime you become aware that you are experiencing something very special. Such is the case with The Royal Ballet’s “The Winters Tale”. The 3-hour performance was totally captivating; exquisite and like no ballet I have ever seen before. Thank you so much for opening my eyes to excitement and wonder that I thought long gone. Congratulations to The Royal Ballet company and all involved in bringing this wonderful production to Brisbane.”
“Technical perfection, raw compelling emotion; extraordinary in every aspect.”
