XLCR at QPAC in September


This brilliant fusion of music, dance, theatre and opera - including a full-scale brass band, Brisbane's own Brisbane Excelsior Band, is a pure, life-affirming celebration of the power of making music together.

With almost 40 performers on stage, this production celebrates the marching band community and one of its members, a larger-than-life trombonist coming to terms with his demotion to cymbal player.

In this exuberant story of love, thwarted ambition and youth, teachers, solicitors, plumbers and nurses are brought together while our hero trombonist terrorises band members, confides in the audience, sings arias and dances an unlikely ballet duet.

This genre-defying international collaboration places our own Brisbane Excelsior Band, winner of eight Australian National Championship titles, at its brimming heart.  The sensationally arranged music includes marching band classics along with Verdi, Beethoven, Schubert, Richard Strauss, Elgar and Holst.
