The Empire Theatre officially launched its 2017 Season to the public on Thursday, 17 November. The Season celebrates an exciting milestone – 20 years of the Empire Theatre since the official reopening in 1997 – and features a number of national companies, including Australian Dance Theatre, Opera Australia, Ilbijerri Theatre Company, Australian Chamber Orchestra, and Queensland Ballet. Another highlight will be the theatre’s production of Wicked. Guests were treated to a performance of ‘Defying Gravity’ by the Wicked Company as a sneak peak of what to expect when the show opens next year on March 31.
