Two Original Works | One Exclusive Brisbane Season

Thank you for your interest in the 2017 QPAC International Series. The Royal Ballet’s exclusive Brisbane season has now concluded and if you would like to be among the first to hear about future QPAC International Series, please sign up here.

Christopher Wheeldon, Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet, created his adaptation of Shakespeare’s late great romance The Winter’s Tale for The Royal Ballet in 2014.

This full-length story ballet follows the destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet, through remorse and regret – and after a statue of Hermione appears to come miraculously to life – the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation. With powerful designs by Bob Crowley and atmospheric music by Joby Talbot, The Winter’s Tale is a masterful modern narrative ballet.

Platinum tickets have now sold out for The Winter’s Tale but great seats still remain across the season.
