Opera by the Bay at Historic Ormiston House

Marking the 50th anniversary of the very first Opera Beneath the Stars at Historic Ormiston House was a marvellous occasion that celebrated family, friends, music, heritage and community!

Despite the rain, guests enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of musical and operatic delights from Rosemarie Arthars, Shaun Brown, Andrew Collis, Sarah Crane, Rosario La Spina, Milijana Nikolic, John Woods, the UQ Singers, Camille Barry and the Black Square Quartet. The heritage gem that is Ormiston House and its beautiful grounds was brought to life as guests celebrated the musical fundraising traditions that were such a vibrant part of the Redlands and Brisbane from 1969, when the first Opera Beneath the Stars was held. Guests also enjoyed the scrumptious delights from The Vintage Apron throughout the fantastic event!

None of this would have been possible without the truly amazing volunteer team that helps bring Historic Ormiston House to life each and every time we open. Thank you to all of our volunteers who prepared the grounds, helped set up for the event, organised catering for our volunteers and performers, assisted guests with parking and entry into the grounds, showed guests through the historic house, oversaw first aid, and took care of the amazing raffle. We also had wonderful help from members of Rotary Wellington Point. We could not do this without all of you!
