We have the pleasure of announcing one of this spring’s finest cultural events: the EXTRAORDINARY CONCERT that brings together three international lyric voices: RAMON VARGAS, the world’s third tenor, soprano KELE BRIGITTA, and baritone GEORGE PETEAN. The highly awaited operistic concert will take place on the 5th of May, as a Premiere at the National Romanian Opera in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and will be guided by Italian conductor Giuliano Carella. The concert represents the Opening Gala of the IVth edition of The VIVA VOX International Opera Festival, that will take place at Cluj-Napoca, during the 5th-11th of May 2014. The Extraordinary Opening Concert, a pure apogee of the entire festival, will bring together for the first time in our country, the world’s third best tenor, Ramon Vargas, baritone George Petean, an artist formed in Cluj, appreciated worldwide and a permanent soloist of the Opera in Hamburg, and soprano Kele Brigitta, another fine local voice, applauded in Europe’s greatest lyric theatres. The Opening Gala Concert follows the pattern of a Viennese ball, rich in glamour, elegance and style, with a red carpet welcoming, an impressive and elevating concert and a closing cocktail party, with special guests of the opera domain, from around the world. The VIVA VOX Festival, a project debuted in 2009, is based on an international lyric concept, that intends to bring together artists and academic music figures from around the world, in a common intercultural artistic initiative. This year’s edition will present, during the 6-11th of May, a series of 11 opera concerts, 4 musical courses, a Doctor Honoris Cause festivity, a scientific international symposium and a workshop, reuniting Music Academies from Bucharest, Cluj, Debrecen (Hungary), Iași (Romania), Jerusalim, Timișoara, Salzburg and Szeged. They also have the pleasure of hosting other remarcable personalities of the lyric domain: Peter Mario Katona – casting director of Covent Garden Royal Opera House, Luisa Petrov – one of the most important european opera agents, Sissy Thammer – director of the Young Artists Festival in Bayreuth, Germany, Maria Temesi – founder and director of the International Canto Contest ”Simandy József” in Hungary, Hermann Keckeis – stage manager of Mozarteum Music and Dramatic Arts University in Salzburg, Anna Maria Ferrante and Louis Rafael Salomon of Santa Cecilia University in Rome, prof. Mohos Nagy Eva- Debrecen Conservatoire University, Gyödry Sándor-conductor and general director of Szeged Opera, Kerek Ferenc- dean of Szeged Music University, opera artists Lucia Stănescu and Viorica Cortez, conductors Petre Sbârcea and Gheorghe Victor Dumănescu, lyric theatre journalists Luminița Constantinescu and Costin Popa, and, never the least, honorary president of the Viva Vox 2014 edition, bass-baritone Ionel Pantea.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
