Matilda The Musical has taken to the stage in its Sydney-Australian premiere this week. To celebrate Matilda’s Top 5 Guide to Sydney, inspired by Roald Dahl’s beloved character, has been released by Destination NSW and the Matilda team to share with fans, and announce news that Qantas is the show’s Official Airline partner and major sponsor.
Matilda is an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination and sharp mind. She started sharing her story with audiences last night when first performances of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s musical adaptation began in Sydney.
Destination NSW CEO, Sandra Chipchase said: “Matilda is an extraordinary girl and Sydney is an extraordinary city, so it’s a perfect time for Matilda The Musical fans and travellers to book their trip to New South Wales to see the award-winning production and experience Australia’s major events capital, Sydney.
“With many people visiting Sydney for the Australian-premiere season of Matilda The Musical, Matilda’s guide gives visitors hints and tips on where to visit.”
Destination New South Wales, the State Government’s tourism and major events agency, the Matilda team and Qantas have worked together to develop travel packages to promote visitation to Sydney for the show from intrastate, interstate and overseas, and a competitive range of travel packages are available to local and international visitors.
Louise Withers, Australian Producer of Matilda the Musical, said: “We’re delighted to announce a new partnership with Qantas, now the Official Airline of Matilda The Musical. Qantas has a long and celebrated history of partnerships with commercial theatrical productions in Australia and we are proud to have them as a partner. The airline will collaborate with Matilda, offering a broad range of packages to promote visitation to Sydney. And as a special celebration, Destination NSW has released the Matilda’s Guide to Sydney”.
Stephen Limbrick, Executive Manager Customer & Commercial Relationships, Qantas, said: “As the national carrier we are excited to be helping Australians from around the country and visitors from around world visit Sydney, to enjoy the beautiful music and lyrics of Tim Minchin through the story of Matilda, one of Roald Dahl’s much loved characters.”
Matilda fans from near and far are encouraged to book their trip to Sydney now to take advantage of Qantas Holidays’ competitive rates and offers, with flights, accommodation and show tickets starting from $535 (AUD) per person twin share*.
