AIDA - GRAND THEATRE DE GENEVE @ Grand Theatre du Geneve

Aida, an opera by Giuseppe Verdi, takes place in the Egypt of the Pharaohs.  Aida, an Ethiopian princess reduced to slavery after the defeat of her people, is to serve at court as Princess Amneris’s lady-in-waiting.  To her misfortune, Aida falls in love with General Radames, whom Amneris hopes to marry.  Radames obviously only burns for Aida ….

British Phelim McDermott creates a production that invites the public to take a fresh look at the inhabitants of ancient Egypt and their culture, while reflecting on the world in which we live.  The musical direction is entrusted to the expert hands of Antonino Fogliani, in Geneva for the first time, the conductor revisits this score with the Orchestra de la Suisse Romande and some of the great Verdian voices of the moment.

The annual Research Forum is the flagship research-outreach event of EU Business School. Held annually in Geneva in the month of October, the Research Forum seeks to establish EU Business School as a platform for high-level discussions and agenda-setting with a diverse range of actors from academia, business and industry, international and governmental organizations, NGOs, and States.

The focus of the Forum are to discuss global issues, generate new ideas, and explore the potential for holistic solutions by connecting different players. The Forum helps us to discover new directions for research and collaboration and showcase our existing commitments and progress. The theme for the Forum is renewed every year which allows us to stay dynamic and cutting-edge.

Now in its second year, the Forum intends to generate new ideas for research and partnerships, while providing thought leadership and direction in shaping our common and shared future. The 2019 Forum will seek to focus on the essential human element of trust, and how it impacts every interaction. Although solutions can be created, it is only through trust that we can truly achieve them. This year we will engage with experts and strategic partners in delivering a world-class event. This will help us to generate our research direction and identify how EU Business School can concretely contribute to outcomes recognized by the international community.
