Singapore Airlines to JETÉ ballet lovers to London 

Courtesy of a new partnership between Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) and Singapore Airlines, two lucky ballet lovers will be winging their way to London for a trip of a lifetime, as recipients of one of the biggest prize packages in QPAC's history.

Singapore Airlines is Airline Partner for QPAC's International Series which this year will present a national exclusive season of two productions by Britain's flagship ballet company, The Royal Ballet.

For the first time outside the Royal Opera House, London, The Royal Ballet, regarded as one of the greatest dance companies in the world, will perform the Australian premiere seasons of two works exclusively in Brisbane, Woolf Works and The Winter's Tale in QPAC's Lyric Theatre from 29 June to 9 July 2017.

The partnership with Singapore Airlines is good news not just for QPAC, but for Queensland and New South Wales based ballet fans too. Each Queensland or New South Wales resident who purchases a ticket for The Royal Ballet season up to 31 May 2017 will automatically go in the draw for two return flights to London with Singapore Airlines, seven night's accommodation in London, and two tickets to a performance by The Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, the home base for this prestigious ballet company.  The total retail prize value of this prize package is between $6,414 to $7,114 and represents one of the highest value prize packages ever offered by QPAC in its 32-year history.

As Airline Partner for QPAC's International Series, Singapore Airlines will fly 95 dancers and other company members of The Royal Ballet from London to Brisbane for their national exclusive season.

This year Singapore Airlines is celebrating a milestone in its Australian services, marking the 50th Anniversary of its flights from Singapore to Sydney and Perth.
