About Opera Australia presents Aida

Presented by Opera Australia & Opera Queensland

This is a story of love so strong it defies enemy lines. This is a story of a kingdom in triumph and a nation in chains. This is a story of betrayal.

Verdi’s monumental music makes this historic epic an enduring favourite. Davide Livermore’s radiant production is a thrilling theatrical experience.

Ten towering digital screens create ever-changing floor-to-ceiling set pieces. Immersive digital video design ranges from rich symbolism to vivid landscapes.

Opulent costumes and props reflect the splendour of Egypt at the height of its power. Together with dramatic video, the massed grandeur of the famous Triumphal March is a visual and musical feast.

Lorenzo Passerini and Tahu Matheson conduct two magnificent casts. Sensational sopranos Leah Crocetto and Natalie Aroyan perform as the enslaved princess, Aida. Elena Gabouri reprises her critically acclaimed turn as Aida’s rival, Amneris, sharing the role with Agnieszka Rehlis.

Najmiddin Mavlyanov and Diego Torre are powerful Radamès’, the man loved by both women.

Venue

Lyric Theatre, Queensland Performing Arts Centre

Accessibility

QPAC is dedicated to being welcoming, accessible and inclusive for the widest possible audience. Your visit to QPAC may involve some stairs. Each theatre has lifts which assist patrons with mobility difficulties to access all foyers.

Directions

QPAC is located in a vibrant part of the city that is currently experiencing growth and development including roadworks that have temporarily changed access to the Centre, in particular the car park.

Please note, current roadworks may cause delays in travel times and we suggest you leave extra time to get to QPAC, so you don’t miss the start of your performance.

Train Stop at South Brisbane Station, opposite QPAC in Grey Street

Bus From 15 August the outbound bus services platform has moved to the end of Victoria Bridge across to the other side of Grey St (Melbourne St, opposite Starbucks Coffee). Platform 2 and Platform 3 will remain in this location for the duration of the Brisbane Metro works. Services will continue to operate from this temporary location as per bus timetables.

CityCat Stop at the South Bank ferry stop, which is only a short walk along the river from QPAC

Taxi The taxi area is located on the Grey Street side of QPAC. Free taxi phones are located in the Melbourne Street foyer, Cremorne Theatre lobby and near the Playhouse cloakroom.

Driving to QPAC From mid-July 2022 until 2024 road directions and access around QPAC and the Queensland Culture Centre will change due to ongoing Brisbane Metro construction. One of the most significant changes will be the permanent closure of Melbourne St between Grey St and Hope St to general vehicular traffic.

Access to the Cultural Centre car parks and the QPAC drop off zone opposite the South Brisbane train station will be via Montague Road.

Car Parking There are a range of parking options around QPAC including the following:

Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre Parking the best option for the Playhouse, with easy access via Russell Street. Entry via Grey Street (northbound) or Merivale Streets (southbound).
