QBE Insurance Australia proud to partner with Opera Australia

QBE Insurance Australia is delighted to announce its sponsorship of Opera Australia’s Regional Tour of The Marriage of Figaro.

Bettina Pidcock, QBE Australia Executive General Manager Marketing, said QBE was pleased to support the arts and partner with this iconic organisation that does so much to nurture Australian talent and bring 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.

"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."

Lyndon Terracini, Opera Australia's Artistic Director said: "Mozart’s masterpiece has been likened to the Downton Abbey of opera, but a whole lot more fun. We are thrilled to be visiting so much of regional Australia on this tour."

  • Warrnambool’s The Lighthouse on 26 July
