Cloud Song

PAST EVENT
Cloudland, Fortitude Valley

One of the best gigs I have been to was Opera Queensland’s Cloud Song…it was basically a raging cocktail party interspersed with bursts of opera. PHIL BROWN, COURIER MAIL

A BRAND NEW Cloud Song is coming!

If you were one of nearly 600 people who experienced the first sell-out Cloud Song, then you’ll LOVE what we’re plotting for Cloud Song 2.

Back by popular demand, we’re taking over Cloudland once more to bring you a new program, new performers and new mind-blowing experiences curated by OperaQ Artistic Director Lindy Hume.

Bring your friends to enjoy a spectacular new line up of unconventional pop-up performances, gourmet food and beverages amidst the awe-inspiring interiors of Cloudland.

This is the event for divas, arias and A-listers. Sundays are for socialising – everything else can wait.
