Opera Queensland deserves great praise for opening their 2019 season with this lovely work. If there is one contemporary opera to make audiences realise that it is still a wonderful artistic form, and that we don’t always need Puccini, this is it.
A tale as old as the Christmas traditions we know and love, shake & stir's adaptation of A Christmas Carol transports the audience back to the Victorian era and we find ourselves amidst a stage with a dark, sooty, grimy feel.

Brainiac Live! has arrived in Australia for the first time and they’ve kicked off their explosive science(esque) antics in Brisbane at QPAC. It’s a fun school holiday outing for the family, with both kids and adults guaranteed to get a laugh out of the staged family friendly version of this popular British T.V. show.
