The 2014 Children’s Exhibition centres on the vibrant and engaging sculptures of Melbourne-based artist Troy Emery. The sculptures depict animals as we’ve never seen them before, using impossible combinations of form, colour and materials. Troy Emery: into the wild explores the complex relationship between animals and humans, with humans often viewing animals not only as living things, but also as companions, and as decorative objects through fashion, patterns and taxidermy.

The most romantic opera of all time, La bohème appeals to devotees and newcomers alike. Mimì’s love affair with the poet Rodolfo begins on a snowy Christmas Eve in Paris on the cusp of 1914, a year that changes the world forever. This intimate and revealing new production stars some of Queensland’s most exciting young singers as a group of rent-dodging flatmates living and loving precariously on the edge of society. Sung in Italian with projected English translations.
