HOTA, Home of the Arts released an official sneak peek of their 2019 program, and we’re pretty excited.
As always, the annual program will offer locals and visitors alike the chance to see a diverse range of events and experiences, including modern classics, iconic family favourites and standout performances.
Kicking off from 5 January with ‘Hell Ain’t A Bad Place To Be – The Story of Bon Scott’, this narrative concert and quintessential rock’n’roll story stars Nick Barker who sings the story of the AC/DC singer in conjunction with the ‘Let there be rock!’ exhibition and program of events.
Standouts in the 2019 program include the sold-out Nick Cave concert, a phenomenal urban circus performance from 360 Allstars, and Opera Queensland’s ‘Verdi’s Requiem’ under the stars, a special collaboration with Bleach* The Gold Coast Festival.
‘Dangerous Liaisons’, Queensland Ballet’s dramatic and vivid new work based off a classic tale, and Opera Queensland’s ‘Madame Butterfly’ join Bell Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ in the line-up of classics.
For family fun there’s the theatrical telling of renowned children’s books Possum Magic and The Gruffalo. The famous Flying Fruit Fly Circus are back with JUNK and The Young King and Hitler’s Daughter offer thought-provoking theatre for kids.
Music lovers will enjoy The Sapphires, Vince Jones and the psychedelic fun of Lady Beatle. To top it all off ‘Wicked the musical’ is flying into HOTA in June and July.
HOTA’s sneak peek into the diverse program planned for 2019 is just the beginning, with more to be unveiled over the coming months.
And not to be missed is the program of events in January around the ‘Let there be rock!’ exhibition. From Up Late at the Gallery where you can get up close and personal with musicians, writers and industry insiders, to the rowdy fun of Pub Choir and a unique kids show by Brisbane’s quirky crew Regurgitator.
