Emporium Hotel South Bank has announced a new partnership with Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC). As part of the agreement, Emporium Hotel South Bank will be recognised as a Supporting Partner of the QPAC International Series 2019 which welcomes back Russia’s Bolshoi Ballet exclusively to Queensland.

The 2019 QPAC International Series will see the presentation by the Bolshoi Ballet of two ballets: Spartacus and Jewels in QPAC’s Lyric Theatre, including the rare opportunity for audiences to make a weekend of it and see both ballet productions on the first weekend of the season. “We are thrilled to be partnering with such an inspiring, world-renowned institution. Not only is QPAC one of Australia’s leading centres for live performance, but we also have the privilege of partnering with them for this year’s International Series, featuring the incredible Bolshoi Ballet,” said Charles Martin, General Manager, Emporium Hotel South Bank.

“The Queensland-only season by the Bolshoi Ballet is set to be one of the landmark cultural events of the year, and we are excited to be able to offer our guests a bespoke package including a coveted ticket to Jewels or Spartacus specifically reserved for media partners, paired with an exquisite 3 course dining experience in Signature, including transfers to the performance venue, for $375 per person.”

“The Bolshoi Ballet is a leading company internationally, and we are proud to partner with QPAC so that our guests will have a truly bespoke cultural experience unique to Brisbane,” said Martin.

QPAC’s Chief Executive John Kotzas said the Centre is pleased to partner with Emporium Hotel South Bank for the 2019 International Series. “Emporium Hotel has been a welcome addition to the Queensland Cultural Centre at South Bank. Following the sold-out Bolshoi Ballet season at QPAC in 2013, we expect this return season by the Bolshoi to attract full houses and draw audiences from across Queensland, interstate and internationally,” said Kotzas.

Emporium Hotel South Bank is centrally located on Grey Street in Brisbane, within Anthony John Group’s AUD$600 million Southpoint precinct and is just a short walk to Queensland Performing Arts Complex (QPAC). The hotel features 143 sumptuously appointed suites, along with a unique range of premium food and beverage options with menus carefully curated by Executive Chef, Chris Norman.

Since 2009 QPAC’s International Series has presented some of the world’s best performance companies, many making their Australian debut, and all exclusive to Queensland including the Paris Opera Ballet, The Bolshoi Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, The Royal Ballet, and Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company.
