Tonight At The Opera

05.01.2010



Standing ovations for Opus and Michael Vatter at the Opera in Graz on the 20th of December 2009!

It was our concert of the year with some even regarding it as the concert of the decade, like our big Swiss fan "Maggs". An almost overcrowded Opera was cheering with final standing ovations of the great audience. Under these circumstances and the very special atmosphere of the location, the dream of the ideal DVD footage became reality.

Selling out the Opera, we were able to collect € 37.000.- for our charity event with Micheal Vatter, who did a very professional set during the first part of the evening and brought the fans into the right mood. The money was given to Karlheinz Böhm's "Menschen für Menschen" to build another Styrian school in Ethiopia which is to be opened by 2011. We will keep you informed.

On Sunday, January 24, 2010 there will be an Opus-Special at 6.30pm on ORF 2 - "Na Na Nanana -25 Jahre Live Is Life", with several outtakes from the Opera concert. The release of the DVD is set for March 2010.
