Only a few remaining tickets for gala concert for the benefit of people affected by HIV/AIDS remain.
With Eva Longoria one more prominent supporter joins the Red Ribbon Celebration Concert on May 24, 2013, in Burgtheater Vienna, Austria.
Eva Longoria visited Life Ball already in 2009 as spokesperson for amfAR – The Foundation for AIDS Research Gast. During the concert she will give a short reading beside Austrian theater stars like Christiane Hörbiger, Sunnyi Melles, Nicholas Ofczarek and Mavie Hörbiger. Several internationally renowned opera singers like Anna Netrebko, Elisabeth Kulman, Erwin Schrott, Piotr Beczala, Ildebrando D'Arcangelo and René Pape will also embrace the good cause. The soloists of the gala concert will be accompanied by the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra.
The net proceeds of the Red Ribbon Celebration Concert will go to the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), which is one of the most important global organizations fighting HIV and AIDS and has been a partner of the Life Ball for many years. President Bill Clinton will be present as representative of his organization and will personally address the audience, who help achieve a central goal by attending the concert: to stem the spread of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa, one of the regions most affected by the AIDS epidemic worldwide.
The Red Ribbon Celebration Concert takes place with friendly support of NOVOMATIC. Those, who want to experience it live, should get their tickets soon – there are just a few remaining tickets.
