Aida on the Beach 2017

Spectacular outdoor production on the beach

Fancy a short break on the Gold Coast? Plan it for September 2017 and combine days relaxing with a spectacular outdoor production of Aida on Coolangatta Beach in the evening. A royal love triangle, a fight for freedom and the famous ‘Triumphal March’ will light up the sky when Aida comes to the beach. It’s a night at the theatre, re-imagined for the kind of evening where you couldn’t bear to go inside. A huge cast and orchestra perform Verdi’s famous music in a new production featuring fireworks of the vocal and exploding kind, colourful costumes and local surf life savers parading past you on the sand.
