QPAC is a triumph of design, technical development and construction, offering arts presenters and the people of Queensland a choice of venues and services to suit every need.
Spacious foyers and corporate entertainment areas complement the world-class performance spaces. QPAC also boasts state-of-the-art production facilities, and a 'total event' management team including backstage and technical crews, front-of-house and hospitality staff.
Since its opening in 1985, the success of QPAC has been measured by the calibre of Australian and international performances that have been staged within its walls. With a history of sell-out musicals, plays, ballets, operas and concerts, QPAC has an unrivalled reputation for providing the right mix of location, space, service and venue.
The Lyric Theatre is a 2,000 seat venue with exceptional acoustics, large main and rear stages and an orchestra pit, and has been designed primarily for opera, ballet and large-scale theatre events such as musicals.
The 1,600 seat Concert Hall is a highly versatile concert venue. Although designed essentially for orchestral performances, the Concert Hall is also ideal for contemporary music and stand-up comedy, as well as range of other events including jazz, graduation ceremonies, international conventions and award presentations.
