Artistic Director – Opera Queensland

  • A rare opportunity to bring artistic vision and leadership to a state flagship opera company
  • A key role in one of the most adventurous and highly regarded arts organisations in Australia
  • Make a unique contribution to the cultural life of Queensland and Australia

Opera Queensland is a progressive, adventurous, artistically vibrant company; leading the way nationally with bold audience development initiatives, ground breaking regional and community engagement programs, multi-faceted collaborations and global reach.

One of Australia’s major performing arts companies, OperaQ serves metropolitan Brisbane and regional/remote Queensland through the development and presentation of opera projects that reflect the Company’s passion for excellence, community and adventure.

Three intersecting spheres of engagement are central to achieving the Company’s goals:

  • In a range of theatres and venues across metropolitan Brisbane, OperaQ presents grand opera of excellence and bold creative adventures;
  • The Company tours extensively throughout regional Queensland, creating unique and innovative opportunities for regional artists and audiences to experience opera; and
  • OperaQ’s Open Stage program creates inspiring education and community engagement programs for all ages.

Located in the heart of Brisbane’s South Bank cultural precinct, adjacent to the homes of its two key performance partners; Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) and Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), OperaQ enjoys creative partnerships with many arts organisations, festivals and presenters across and beyond Queensland.

OperaQ is seeking a new Artistic Director who is an experienced practitioner with outstanding credentials and credibility in the opera community.

The Artistic Director will hold a cultural leadership role in the local and broader community, and will be an ambassador and advocate for OperaQ.

The appointee will have a deep understanding of opera as a composer driven presentation, developed through roles including directing, performing, conducting, musical or artistic leadership, or academe.
