ZURICH, December 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Solway Investment Group today announced its inaugural partnership with the Salzburg Festival: the Group will sponsor Mozart's opera production, "La Clemenza di Tito" directed by Peter Sellars and conducted by Teodor Currentzis.
This will be the first time Solway joins the list of honored Swiss festival supporters like Nestle and Roche, who have been involved with the Salzburg Festival for decades.
Solway will use the cooperation to deepen its commitment to providing talented young people access to the arts through its specifically developed Fellowship Program http://solwaygroup.com/musiccamp/ . The partnership will give young talents from economically challenged regions where the Group operates a chance to experience the World's most renowned classic festival through participating in the Salzburg Music Camp for Children and Youth. Already, work is underway to promote the benefits that talented, young people could experience by being a part of an international music event, via applying to the 8 months Fellowship Program. Solway offers an educational program designed to integrate creatives from the local communities into modern life through experiencing arts and adapting their cultural traditions to the realities of the new world. The Solway fellowship is offered to young members of the Group's employees families in Ukraine, Macedonia and Guatemala. The most involved fellow talents will experience the Music Camp's international environment in Salzburg in August 2017.
"The Salzburg Festival partnership particularly appealed to us because it brings together our appetite for innovation and focus on business sustainability and new generation development with a commitment to widening talents' access to the international art scene. Art is the perfect tool to unite diverse communities and cultures. The newly announced relationship will allow the Festival to stage an innovative performance, combining tradition and courage to blaze new trails whilst adhering to the highest quality which Salzburg Festival is renowned for." says Dan Bronstein, Solway's Chairman of the Board.
Festival President Helga Rabl-Stadler commented: "We are delighted with this new partnership with yet another Swiss company, Solway Investment Group. Now that they are on board we are looking forward to working closely with them. Opera is a key feature of the Festival and "La Clemenza di Tito" staged by Peter Sellars and Teodor Currentzis is such a revitalized and high quality production. It is a perfect match for Solway Investment Group."
The Festival http://www.salzburgerfestspiele.at/ is now in its 97th year and is staging 7 operas as well as a variety of concerts, dramas and performances for children. This year's work will be united by one theme - the destructive force of power and the conflicts that it generates resultant in the destruction of human relationships and the loss of one's place in the fabric of society.
