Pas de Deux in Paradise – September 2016

On Sale 9.00am (AEST) Monday, 18 May 2015

Join The Australian Ballet at qualia in 2016 for an intimate and exclusive weekend of Pas de Deux in Paradise.
 
Under the stars, The Australian Ballet will perform two outdoor performances for 140 special guests per show, with the stunning Whitsunday Islands as their backdrop.

For the first time in the pas de deux in paradise event’s history, guests have the option to purchase an all-inclusive package, with the opportunity to go ‘behind the scenes’ with The Australian Ballet. Otherwise, guests can select a ticket for the performance and dinner.
 
We regret there will not be a pas de deux in paradise event in 2015.

What you’ll love about pas de deux in paradise: 

  • Held under a glittering sky, with the Whitsunday Islands as their backdrop, The Australian Ballet takes to the stage to perform some of the ballet’s favourite pas de deux.
  • A unique opportunity to see one of the world’s best ballet groups, in a spectacular, open-air stage setting.
  • As well as enjoying the performance, you can also experience the absolute luxury and comfort of Hamilton Island’s qualia.
