BRISBANE FESTIVAL, 5-28 SEPTEMBER.
Each September, the Brisbane Festival explodes across the city with a thrilling program of theatre, music, dance, circus, opera and major public events such as Sunsuper Riverfire.
Like a feast, Brisbane Festival 2019 is designed to lift our spirits, our responsiveness and our appetites beyond the everyday. The lively program is an explosion of outstanding arts experiences, tasty treats and tipples and the return of Treasury Brisbane Arcadia and Sunsuper Riverfire fireworks spectacular.
Pop the cork on a riotous champagne-soaked party, open the door on a tantalising glimpse into the unknown, or experience the force and fury of passionate love in a diverse and delightful program arranged into three themes: REVELS, REVELATIONS and ROMANCES.
This year, Queensland’s largest arts and cultural event will be both boldly Brisbane and gloriously global. It will host 454 performances of 83 shows, involving over 908 artists from around the world, including headliners 59 Productions, the global leaders in digital and projection storytelling; Chinese superstar dancemaker Yang Liping, South African music theatre ensemble Isango; and France’s Compagnie Carabosse. Four big concerts at the much-loved Riverstage will mark that venue’s 30th birthday.
