Indosuez Wealth Management continues its journey with the Ballet du Grand Théâtre
and renews its support as official partner
Geneva, 3 June 2021 - As an active supporter of both the Swiss and international cultural scenes, Indosuez Wealth Management reiterates its commitment as official partner of the prestigious Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève for the 2021-2022 season. An opportunity for the wealth manager to reaffirm the values of excellence and transmission that inspire its philanthropic actions and to perpetuate the art of choreography in this historic temple dedicated to the performing arts.
A partnership built on common values
Indosuez Wealth Management is fully in line with the values of excellence and transmission spearheaded by the Grand Théâtre de Genève and proud to renew its support for the activities of the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève, whose work, combining tradition and creation, has acquired a worldwide reputation thanks in particular to the commitment of Philippe Cohen, its Ballet Director, who will be signing his last season.
"In such a difficult moment during which the pandemic has strongly impacted the cultural world, our commitment is particularly meaningful. Our contribution to this new season underlines our local footprint and our commitment to the arts that constitute the cultural and social legacy of the city," said Jean-François Deroche, Chief Executive Officer of Indosuez Wealth Management in Switzerland.
Aviel Cahn, General Director of the Grand Théâtre, adds: "The unfailing support of Indosuez Wealth Management during the health crisis is a strong encouragement for our ballet company, which has been particularly hard hit. After almost a year and a half without being able to see the ballet perform on stage, this commitment allows us to continue developing our ambitious choreographic project. "
"Faites l’amour''... A programme celebrating choreographic beauty
After Philippe Cohen's last daring programme, which was unfortunately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Indosuez Wealth Management's support will materialise on stage through several performances given by the Ballet du Grand Théâtre, but also by the guest company Batscheva, which will come to Geneva in March 2022 to present ''Hora'' under the direction of Ohad Naharin.
For the Ballet du Grand Théâtre, the season will begin in November this year with Jeroen Verbruggen's Nutcracker, one of the jewels of its repertoire, seen in theatres in France, Italy, Germany and Russia and last performed in Geneva in November 2015. In February 2022, pursuing the exploration of the opera-ballet begun with “Les Indes galantes” two seasons ago, the Grand Théâtre and Leonardo García Alarcón at the head of his Cappella Mediterranea will engage the services of Angelin Prejlocaj, the leading figure in French choreography to stage “Atys”, this somewhat forgotten masterpiece by Lully where the entire corps de ballet will perform alongside the singers and the orchestra of the Capella Mediterranea. Finally, the Ballet du Grand Théâtre will end its 2021-2022 season with a revival of “Tristan and Isolde” set to music by Wagner, as the culmination of the mandate of its director Philippe Cohen, who acknowledges that it is one of the finest, if not the finest, of all the works he has offered to the public of Geneva and the world.
