Boggie to sing with first class stars in Vienna
PRESS RELEASE – Vienna State Opera and ORF will host the grand gala concert “Pop meets Opera” only two days before the Eurovision Song Contest semi-finals on 17 May 2015.
The opportunity is a great honour and acknowledgement for Boggie as only five ESC singers and Austrian representative Conchita Wurst is invited to perform at the concert.
Placido Domingo and Juan Diego Florez will also sing at the gala and a joint surprise performance will also be presented to the audience.
Boggie’s performance will also be extraordinary as she will sing her song “Wars for Nothing” together with the children’s choir of the Vienna State Opera.
“After receiving the invitation from the Austrian organizers I was extremely happy and proud at the same time. I could not believe this is all happening to me. It was not even in my wildest dreams to stand on the same stage as Placido Domingo… Whatever happens in Vienna, I will be forever grateful to fate for this gift.”
Áron Sebestyén (co-author of “Wars for Nothing”) will accompany Boggie on piano in the Vienna State Opera where she will perform in a wonderful Elysian dress besides the singers of Armenia, Ireland, Cyprus and Norway.
The gala will be broadcast live on ORF.
