Press release

Geneva, 15 November 2016.

Christian Gerhaher will be unable to perform on his recital date of 27 January 2017 at the Opéra des Nations, due to another engagement with another institution on the same date. Le Grand Théâtre de Genève’s General Manager and Christian Gerhaher are currently discussing possibilities for another recital date during the 2017-2018 season.

The Grand Théâtre de Genève is very pleased to announce that the famous Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas will be on stage at the Opéra des Nations in recital on Friday 27 January 2017, in order to fulfil our commitments to our audiences.

For his first time on stage at the Grand Théâtre de Genève, Ramón Vargas – one of the greatest tenors of our time – will be performing Franz Liszt’s Three Sonnets of Petrarch, Xavier Montsalvatge’s Cinco canciones negras as well as art songs by Leoncavallo, Cilea, Respighi, Mascagni, Denza, Tosti and Rossini. Mzia Bakthouridze will accompany him at the piano.

Ticket holders for the Christian Gerhaher recital may consider two options: full reimbursement of their tickets or keeping the same seats for the Ramón Vargas recital, under the same conditions.
