Aida on the Beach

21 - 30 September | Coolangatta Beach

GRIFFITH OPERA ON THE BEACH

AIDA ON THE BEACH

A royal love triangle, a fight for freedom and the famous ‘Triumphal March’ will light up the sky when Aida comes to the beach.

It’s a night at the theatre, re-imagined for the kind of evening where you couldn’t bear to go inside.

A huge cast and orchestra perform Verdi’s famous music in a new production featuring fireworks of the vocal and exploding kind, colourful costumes and local surf life savers parading past you on the sand.

Presented by Opera Australia in partnership with City of Gold Coast and Tourism & Events Queensland and in association with Bleach* Festival.
