Queensland Ballet “QB on Tour 2024”

The Queensland Ballet will be presenting four glittering works from their vault for the QB on Tour 2024 performance.

The evocative Three Preludes, choreographed by Ben Stevenson OBE, is the romantic tale of two dancers falling in love, which is exemplified by the compelling choreography and graceful, synchronised movements set to the sublime music of Sergei Rachmaninoff.

Marius Petipa’s Le Corsaire pas de deux transports audiences into a world of swash-buckling pirates, exotic landscapes with elegant excerpts requiring technical brilliance and precise partnering.

Greg Horsman’s beautiful A Rhapsody in Motion premiered in 2022 to audience and critical acclaim and explores the fascinating relationship between the dancer and the captivating music of Rachmaninoff.

Tchaikovsky Mash by Matthew Lawrence evokes the classical era of dance in a compilation of short works featuring the music from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and more.

Date: Friday 8 March

Drizzle Boy

Drizzle Boy is a Queensland Theatre production about an autistic boy who is poked, prodded and diagnosed by a world that wants to change him and a family who doesn’t understand him.

On his first day of university he meets Juliet, his very own star-crossed love and everything seems possible, including his lifelong dream of building a rocket and blasting-off toward the stars.

Drizzle Boy’s day-to-day life is harder than navigating intergalactic space travel.

He needs all the help he can get and that’s where the audience comes in.

Patrons are invited to climb aboard the wildly audacious and wonderfully affirmative rocket ride.

Date: Wednesday 23 October
