Your decision to leave a gift for Queensland Ballet in your Will is a powerful legacy for future generations to enjoy the beauty and wonder of ballet in Queensland. If ballet has been a part of your life’s journey, we invite you to consider a bequest in your Will to celebrate the art form which has given you such pleasure.


“I had the rare opportunity of founding an institution which will make a lasting contribution to art and give pleasure to countless millions long after I have gone.”

Charles Lisner

#QB Forever - Your Legacy

Queensland Ballet is on a journey which began over 60 years ago, and which will continue well into the future, enriching the lives of generations to come. Throughout the decades, the Company has received support through bequests from many ballet lovers, each of whom has been moved by the wonder and beauty of this art form. Their generosity helps us to safeguard and nurture this precious experience for future audiences to enjoy.

If ballet has been a part of your life journey, we invite you to consider a bequest in your will to celebrate the art form, and the Company, which has given you such pleasure. Your gift can play a real and meaningful role in ensuring that future generations may enjoy ballet as an important part of their lives, too. 

Every bequest is gratefully received. We warmly welcome the opportunity to have a confidential conversation about your journey and your role in Queensland Ballet’s future.

#A message from Nigel Gaynor

“It’s a joy to work with exceptional and passionate musicians, dancers, choreographers, coaches, designers, skilled costume makers and many others to produce a unique and special experience for an audience.

I’ve seen how the combined arts in ballet hugely inspire people of all ages. I believe it not only moves us deeply, but motivates everyone to get passionate and creative in something they love, whatever it is. This is why I am bequeathing to our wonderful Queensland Ballet, who enrich the lives of so many Australians.”

- Nigel Gaynor,  Music Director and Principal Conductor
