Although much of the buzz at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) over the coming months will come from its Queensland’s Own season performances involving Queensland Theatre, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Ballet, Opera Queensland and Circa – a few scattered performances and concerts also arriving on the stage. It has been confirmed that after not being able to perform much of its 25th Anniversary program due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Southern Cross Soloists will be performing the aptly titled SXS Returns on the Concert Hall Stage.
Being performed on Sunday 18 October 2020 to a socially distanced audience, SXS Returns brings the anniversary season to an end, but will conclude things with a diverse program of works. These include pieces by Telemann, Grieg, Verdi, Richard Strauss and Liszt and feature guest artists; international didgeridoo soloist Chris Williams and Opera Queensland’s 2020 Young Artist, soprano Rebecca Cassidy.
The performance will take place at the QPAC Concert Hall for one-show only at 3.00pm on Sunday 18 October 2020. Tickets can be purchased either via the QPAC Website or via the QTIX Booking Line on 136-246 at a flat rate of $70.00 (with discounts for concession card holders, full-time students and those <30 years old).
Given that QPAC has only recently reopened after months of closure and the box office may still be working at a limited capacity, please be patient if you decide to call the lovely team at QTIX (Seriously, all of them are lovely, lovely people!).
