60th Anniversary Gala


Playhouse, QPAC

#Celebrate sixty extraordinary years of Queensland Ballet on stage.

Join us for an unforgettable retrospective that celebrates the wealth of dance created and presented by Queensland Ballet since the first performance by Charles Lisner’s company, The Lisner Ballet, in 1960.

Our acclaimed dancers will be joined by international guest stars paying tribute to the contributions of Queensland Ballet’s five Artistic Directors: Charles Lisner OBE, Harry Haythorne, Harold Collins MBE, François Klaus and Li Cunxin AO. 

Enjoy excerpts from iconic works, including Charles Lisner’s Chopin pas de deux (1965), Jacqui Carroll’s Carmina Burana (1982), Harold Collins’ The Lady of the Camellias (1996) and Francois Klaus’s The Little Mermaid (2003) and Cloudland (2004). Fittingly, our season will culminate in Harald Lander’s thrilling and masterful homage to classical ballet, Études (1948) as we showcase Queensland Ballet today, under current Artistic Director, Li Cunxin AO.
