The Rotary Club of Stanthorpe and Ballandean Estate are proud to announce some changes to Opera that are sure to raise the profile of this already successful event.

Food, wine and Opera! A heady mix for some and with the changes being implemented this year, the tickets for Opera are already selling fast.
The biggest news is that the award winning Barrelroom restaurant has taken on the task of catering for the event and guests are assured of an amazing menu. “we are delighted to have the Barrelroom on board with Opera” says Leeanne Puglisi-Gangemi, “The menu that Matt and Bobbi have put together is delicious and features many of their signature dishes, so guests will certainly be in for a treat” 
The lunch event has become a very popular way to start the day and guests will be treated to a buffet style meal, as in past years but this year featuring the Barrelroom’s succulent meat dishes, salads and their specialty in house dessert selections.
Opera begins at 2.30 sharp and will feature the ever amazing artists from Opera Queensland with a production specifically created for Opera in the Vineyard at Ballandean.  The artists for 2015 will be announced shortly. A new feature this year  is the option to book reserved seating in the first 5 rows.  So it is now possible to have a very intimate experience at Opera – up close and personal!
The gala dinner has been limited to only 400 guests and the meal will be presented as a 3 course, table service event with a selection of the Barrelroom’s signature meals.  Wine waiters will be allocated to tables and  the largest selection of Ballandean Estate wines ever  will be available to enjoy.  Also included this year is the Everly Bros Tribute band who will entertain the crowd with dance music and a show.
“We hope that these changes will give our guests the best experience they have ever had at Opera” says Leeanne,  “the changes have been a work in progress for a few years, but 2015 is the year they will all culminate and we will once again,  have a truly magical day.”
