Queensland Ballet Friends —
Join the Queensland Ballet Friends and engage with your Company throughout the year.
Our Friends are invited to events throughout the year where they have the opportunity to mingle with our Artistic team and dancers.
Our first event of the year, Meet the Dancers, was a great success. Many of our Friends met with Artistic Director Li Cunxin and the new dancers who joined the Company this year. It was also an opportunity to find out a little more about our new training initiative, the Jette Parker Young Artist Program, and meet our Young Artists for 2014.
Our next event will be an exclusive Tea, Tights and Tutus Brunch at Brisbane City Hall, on Saturday 28 June. Our Friends will be invited to meet and mingle with international guests in the production of Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo & Juliet, our own Queensland Ballet dancers, and Artistic Director Li Cunxin.
In addition, our Friends’ Christmas Party will be held on Friday 21 November. An opportunity to share some Christmas cheer with our dancers and reflect on the achievements of Season 2014.
Information for these events will be made available closer to the dates.
If you haven’t already joined the Friends, why not take this opportunity to join us? And why not pass it on to a friend of yours who may have a special place in their heart for the ballet?
For more information phone Queensland Ballet on 07 3013 6666.
For the first time, Dress Rehearsals are open to our Friends. Enjoy unique insight into how the dancers, Artistic and Technical teams work through the final rehearsal prior to Opening Night. Please note each Friend is entitled to purchase one Dress Rehearsal ticket per annum.
Our Friends will continue to receive newsletters throughout the year with details of upcoming events and further insights into the workings of the Company.
