The lights dim, the music swells, and wrapped in the magical embrace of Cloudland, the dance begins… An iconic Brisbane building for decades, the Cloudland ballroom was the focus of the city’s social life. Countless romances blossomed under its spinning mirror balls. Romantic, nostalgic, and humorous, Cloudland is based on real-life stories of romance, friendship and war-time relationships. With music performed live on stage by Sean O’Boyle and his fabulous band, the production gives an energetic and dynamic portrayal of life, love and dance in Brisbane from the 1940s to the 1980s. Choreographed by François Klaus, this wonderfully entertaining ballet was a sell-out hit at the 2004 Brisbane Festival, and has since charmed audiences on a critically acclaimed tour to six cities across Germany and Switzerland. Let the spirited dancers of Queensland Ballet whisk you back in time to Cloudland!
