Opera In the Vineyard is a black tie charity event held on the first weekend in May each year in the spectacular vineyards of Ballandean Estate Wines. The event is one of South East Queensland’s premier cultural events, and the jewel of the Granite Belt’s social calendar.
Opera in the Vineyard attracts up to 1800 people each year providing an intoxicating mix of music, wine, food and an unforgettable time. The event organisers Ballandean Estate Wines and the Rotary Club of Stanthorpe have donated almost a million dollars to charity since the events inception.
Opera in the Vineyard offers a number of experiences to suit each guest:
Lunch and Opera: a sumptuous sit down lunch followed by Opera in the open air amphitheatre
Opera and Dinner: arrive in time for the opera and stay for the Gala Dinner Dance to dance the night away
All Day: arrive for lunch and stay until the band stops playing at the end of the night
Opera Only: Spend 3.5 hours mesmerised by the music, the view and the wine.
Full bars will be operating at the Opera and both lunch and dinner where you can choose from a range of award winning Ballandean Estate wines or your favourite alcohol of choice. Please Note: Wine is not included with the meals, so now you can enjoy your favourite wine with the amazing food.
