Ringing in a ticketing change

Single ring cycle tickets released.

Opera Australia has released individual tickets for each opera in the Brisbane Ring Cycle,

giving audiences the opportunity to get a taste of Wagner’s epic masterpiece without committing to the full 15 hours.

Tickets are now on sale for each of the individual operas, that when performed together are collectively known

as Der Ring des Nibelungen or simply the Ring Cycle. This new production is exclusive to Brisbane and

premieres at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) on Friday 1 December 2023.

Previously on sale only as complete packages of four operas, this new ticket release will enable ticket buyers

to attend one or more performances instead of the week-long commitment required for an entire Cycle.

Each of the four operas are themselves extraordinary works, with fantastical tales of dragons and gods and

mystical forces that stand alone as pinnacles of the artform, but combined they create one of greatest artistic

masterpieces of all time.

Presented in partnership with the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council, and in collaboration with

Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Opera Queensland and Dancenorth,

the Ring Cycle will feature a wealth of the state’s brilliant musical and performing talent.

While die-hard Ring fans are travelling from all around the world to experience this brand-new production, (the

first to use fully digital sets) the availability of single tickets will now give new audiences easier access to this

cutting-edge version of one of the most significant works in the opera repertoire.

Ticket buyers will now have the option to build their own variable package, for those wanting to view more than

one production, and to mix and match dates across the three-week season.

Tickets to the individual Ring operas (single tickets) start at $165 and bookings of two or more performances

qualify buyers for a discounted rate.

December will also see Opera Australia and Opera Queensland present Aida, which is being staged on the

nights between the Ring operas. Making its Brisbane premiere at QPAC, this highly acclaimed staging of Verdi’s

renowned classic was the first production in the world to revolutionise opera with digital screens.

Aida provides opera enthusiasts and newbies alike a spectacular, immersive theatrical journey created by ten

huge LED screens, exquisite costumes, breathtaking choreography, and Verdi’s monumental music performed

by a sensational cast. Tickets for the Brisbane season of Aida are available separately.

The Ring Cycle Brisbane is supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events

Queensland and Brisbane City Council through the Brisbane Economic Development Agency, and features on

the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar.

The sprint is on to secure tickets to individual Ring Cycle operas.
