Like many a Brisbane venue, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre has been forced to adjust its 2020 plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, the South Bank site has been closed since mid-March — but, come Friday, August 28, it'll be back in business with a new live performance series.

That'd be QPAC Unlocked, which'll feature classical and popular music, musical theatre stars and cabaret performances. It all runs through until Saturday, October 3, complete with burlesque, dance, circus and comedy on the bill as well.

Accordingly, Brisbanites can catch Opera Queensland's Katie Stenzel and Samuel Piper croon their way through an evening of well-known opera, operetta and musical theatre pieces; check out Helpmann Award-winner Amy Lehpamer in An Evening with Amy Lehpamer; and enjoy the talents of  classical soloists and chamber musicians — and that's just a few gigs on the bill.

Also on offer in QPAC's Cremorne Theatre is a series within the broader series called Club Cremorne, which is hosted by Damien Power. It'll serve up shows on Friday and Saturday evenings, with food and drinks also available.

Unsurprisingly, these will all be smaller events than QPAC usually hosts, in line with COVID-19 social-distancing requirements — so if you're keen, getting in quick is recommended. And, they'll be held all throughout the centre, including turning the Lyrebird restaurant into a live music venue.

 

QPAC Unlocked runs from Friday, August 28–Saturday, October 3, with tickets available online.
