YTL AND FRANCIS YEOH OFFER ROME
A FREE GALA CONCERT
To mark the entrance of YTL on the Board of Directors of Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, the Managing Director of the YTL Group, Francis Yeoh, offers the city of Rome a gala concert at the Terme di Caracalla on the 19th of July, with all proceeds going to UNICEF. An event open to all, with free entry, although any donations will be gladly accepted. This will be an evening of magnificent music, with the ancient baths as a backdrop, and will feature the return of José Carreras, plus performances by the tenors Russell Watson and Alessandro Safina, the flautist Andrea Griminelli, the soprano Cynthia Lawrence and the mezzo-soprano Carly Paoli. They will be accompanied by the Roma United Orchestra conducted by David Giménez.
A programme that has yet to be finalised and is likely to include a few surprise appearances by other international stars.
Tickets can be collected from Saturday, the 4th of July onwards at the Teatro dell’Opera box office (piazza Beniamino Gigli). On collecting your tickets you will also receive information on how to make your donation.
