Opera Queensland launched its 2017 season with Sensory, a performance held in the iconic spaces of GOMA, on Friday, 7 April. From the moment of arrival, each guest became part of a delicious secret, a joyous celebration of music, dance, art, food and wine. As guests broke into smaller groups, they embarked on individual journeys through the gallery. The evening took on a dreamlike quality – guests were captivated by the artists’ stirring, emotional performances, and given a rare opportunity to witness it all up close.
