Building on more than two decades of regional activity across this vast and diverse state, in 2013 Opera Queensland continues to deliver highest quality opera and music theatre experiences for regional communities across Queensland.

Waltzing Our Matilda – On Tour!

In 2013 we toured to centres across Queensland, including Quilpie, Biloela and Goondiwindi, with Waltzing Our Matilda, an intimate and warmly entertaining musical evening created by Jason and Leisa Barry-Smith and Narelle French. Waltzing Our Matilda features Jason Barry-Smith as the legendary Australian poet Banjo Paterson and a five-member cast in an affectionate salute to some of Queensland’s most celebrated musical icons.

Open Stage - Discover Your Creative Potential!

No matter where you live, whatever your age or skill level, Open Stage is a great way to get involved with your opera company and bring out your creative best. This year we will bring our all-ages education and community programs to more communities across regional Queensland. So look out for your opera company and get involved!

Opera at Jimbour

Presented by Opera Queensland and Queensland Music Festival

We were thrilled to collaborate with Queensland Music Festival to present Opera at Jimbour, one of regional Queensland’s most popular free events. Four wonderful soloists and the renowned Opera Queensland Chorus performed a special celebration of the 2013 Verdi Bicentenary.
