Eight extraordinary performers from styles spanning opera to rock join forces to create a bloody reimagining of the Grimm’s Snow White.

This lush, full-length story ballet from France’s greatest contemporary ballet company features massive sets, the music of Mahler, and costumes by Jean Paul Gaultier.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was Walt Disney’s first great love letter to the Brothers Grimm.

Brisbane Festival’s annual photographic exhibition invites both high school students and the general public to submit an original work. Anyone who loves to dabble in photography, or considers themselves a professional photographer, can participate in this rewarding experience.
