Best in show.

Have you even seen the artist roster coming up at the Arts Centre on the Gold Coast!? Irish funny man Ross Noble, Sesame Street presenting Elmo’s World Tour, and St Hilda’s ‘Anne of Green Gables’.

Not only is it a beautiful fresh venue, with a multitude of different spaces that keep even the keenest arts enthusiasts on their toes, it also caters to the tastes of most demographics and gives them all a really solid schedule of performances through which to plan their nights.

Queensland Ballets ‘Cloudland’ appears in June.

The lights dim, the music swells, and wrapped in the magical embrace of Cloudland, the dance begins…

An iconic Brisbane building for decades, the Cloudland ballroom was the focus of the city’s social life. Countless romances blossomed under its spinning mirror balls. Romantic, nostalgic, and humorous, Cloudland is based on real-life stories of romance, friendship and war-time relationships. With music performed live on stage by Sean O’Boyle and his fabulous band, Blackwood, the production gives anenergetic and dynamic portrayal of life, love and dance in Brisbane from the 1940s to the 1980s.

Choreographed by François Klaus, this wonderfully entertaining ballet was a sell-out hit at the 2004 Brisbane Festival, and has since charmed audiences on a critically acclaimed tour to six cities across Germany and Switzerland.

Let the spirited dancers of Queensland Ballet whisk you back in time to Cloudland.

Tour managed and coordinated by arTour, an initiative supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
