One again in 2015 one of Germany‘s most important charity events will take place at the Opernhaus Düsseldorf with the German AIDS Foundation’s Festive Opera Gala. “Do good and enjoy doing it” is the philosophy behind an evening which provides an exemplary combination of a festive concert of operatic arias, sparkling company and a good cause. Not only does it sharpen awareness of the disease AIDS for which no cure has yet been found, but together with its many sponsors in the campaign against the spread of AIDS the gala promotes a responsible partnership between all the forces of our society.

Experienced vocal stars of international renown and ensemble members from the Deutsche Oper am Rhein together join our opera chorus and the Duisburger Philharmoniker to perform the most beautiful highlights of operas, operettas and musical theatre. The compere, as entertaining as he is informed, is Holger Wemhoff, whose voice will be very familiar to all listeners of Klassik-Radio. As in previous years, all the performers are waiving their fees and donating their services free of charge to support this worthy cause.

The full proceeds of the 6th Festive Opera Gala will be used by the German AIDS Foundation to help people who are HIV positive and people with AIDS in Germany and in southern Africa. The first five Festive Opera Galas in Düsseldorf have raised over 740,000 Euro – money which the German AIDS Foundation has invested in helping individuals, groups and projects in Germany (predominantly in NRW) as well as in the DREAM Programme in Mozambique, which enables pregnant women who are HIV positive to give birth to healthy babies.

By buying your ticket for the 6th Festive Opera Gala you can actively support this important work by the German AIDS Foundation and at the same time help to stop discrimination against those who are affected by AIDS and invite them into our society.
