An exceptional benefit concert for the Geneva Boutique reopening
To mark the reopening following renovation of our Boutique on the Rue du Rhône, Geneva, Chopard gave a major classical music concert on behalf of the José Carreras International Foundation for the Fight against Leukaemia, as well as the Anna & Erwin Foundation – Anna Netrebko and Erwin Schrott for Kids.
Anna Netrebko, José Carreras and Erwin Schrott – three longstanding friends of the Scheufele family that owns Chopard – gave an exceptional performance on January 20th, 2013, before a full house at Geneva’s Victoria Hall, backed by the Gstaad Festival Orchestra conducted on this occasion by David Giménez.
On stage, after the Gstaad Festival Orchestra played the Overture from William Tell by Giocchino Rossini (1792-1868), the artists notably performed pieces such as “Bess you is my woman” from George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess (1898-1937) as well as “Quando me’n vo” from The Bohemian Girl by Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924).
During the second half of the evening, the artists and guests congregated for a private event held at the nearby Little Buddha restaurant. Dinner was served to the tune of a lively musical accompaniment from the Gypsy Queens.
