Suncorp is committed to supporting the Arts in Queensland and very proud to be the Lead Partner of Queensland Ballet for the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
Queensland Ballet is a vibrant, creative company which enriches the lives of Queenslanders through ballet. Under the artistic direction of Li Cunxin, the company has soared to new heights, offering a diverse program of world-class productions with reach across the state.
To celebrate the new partnership, Suncorp and Queensland Ballet launched the Suncorp Wish Upon a Ballet Star promotion, which saw over 640 young Queenslanders enter the competition vying for the chance to win the major prize of a walk on role in Ben Stevenson’s magical Nutcracker. In addition, over 15,600 votes were received from the public to select the competition’s ‘Peoples Choice Award Winner’ – with the winner getting the chance to meet some of their idols during a behind the scenes experience at QPAC.
In 2015, the partnership will continue to provide opportunities for the community and our customers to experience the wonder of ballet, and will see Suncorp as Presenting Partner for the Queensland Ballet main stage production of Peter Pan. This family friendly production, fits with Suncorp’s goal to make ‘the art of dance’ more accessible to Queensland families right across the state.
