QBE Insurance Australia sponsors regional opera tour
QBE Insurance Australia has announced its sponsorship of Opera Australia’s regional tour of The Marriage of Figaro.

Bettina Pidcock, QBE Australia EGM Marketing, said QBE was pleased to support the arts and join-hands with the iconic organisation that does so much in nurturing Aussie talent and bringing the performing arts to regional Australia.

“We are especially proud to help take this wonderful production of The Marriage of Figaro to so many fans, old and new, across Australia,” Pidcock said in a statement.

“As an insurer of customers and communities as diverse as the country we live in, QBE is driven by a desire to connect with people across Australia, whether they call the city or the country home.”

“We are honoured to bring some of Australia’s most talented cast, crew, and musicians on this much anticipated tour of Australia through this partnership with Opera Australia,” said Pidcock.

Lyndon Terracini, Opera Australia’s artistic director, said: “Mozart’s masterpiece has been likened to the Downtown Abbey of opera, but a whole lot more fun. We are thrilled to be visiting so much of regional Australia on this tour.”

As a show of support to Opera Australia, QBE is giving away five double passes to each of the following performances:
  • Warrnambool’s The Lighthouse on 26 July;
  • Warragul’s West Gippsland Arts Centre on 28 July; and
  • Parramatta’s Riverside Theatre on 19 August.
Winners will be chosen from participants who visit their website and explain in 25 words or less why they would like to see The Marriage of Figaro.

The competition closes for Warrnambool and Warragul at 4pm on 22 July 2016, and for Parramatta at 4pm on 12 August 2016.
