We are just over a week away from the launch of the Brisbane Festival.
The three-week festival runs from 3 September till 24 September and offers some of the most interesting, inspiring and cutting edge art and entertainment the city, the country and the world has to offer. Experience and delight in the offerings to be had from dance, theatre, opera, classical music, visual arts, circus, sideshows and contemporary music. There’s surely something on to tempt the creative within.
This year is set to be a landmark year with the 2011 programme boasting four world premieres, five Australian premieres and eleven international productions. What more could the creative, art minded and everyone in Brisbane ask for, especially with an extensive range of both free and ticketed events.
The Festival’s opening extravaganza will set the city a light, with the famous and colourful fireworks display Riverfire, a not to be missed highlight on the Brisbane calendar. The light theme continues throughout the Festival with the introduction of an exciting new show, Santos City of Lights, the first laser light show of it’s kind in Australia.
