Red Ribbon Celebration Concert
The Life Ball, one of the world's biggest AIDS charity events, is taking a creative break in 2016. Nevertheless, the Red Ribbon Celebration Concert, which has been a fixed component of the Life Ball weekend for the past four years, will be held this year as usual. Vienna's Burgtheater will be decked out in Red Ribbons for the fifth time on 10 June.
Stars including Anna Netrebko, Piotr Bezcala, Yusif Eyvazov, Juan Diego Flórez, Thomas Hampson, Michael Heltau, Margarita Gritskova, Philippe Jaroussky, Dionne Warwick and many more besides will follow in the footsteps of the legend of Orpheus and Eurydice at this concert. All proceeds of the evening will go towards HIV/AIDS aid projects in Austria and abroad. The Wiener Akademie orchestra plays under the direction of Martin Haselböck. Short readings will be given between the musical offerings.
