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.
Sunday 30 August 4.00pm – 7.00pm | Cloudland, Fortitude Valley
