Experience the St. Gallen Festival live!

As the long-standing presenting partner of the St. Gallen Festival, Credit Suisse can enable you to enjoy an exclusive visit to the opera. Win tickets in the stand for the opera performance in the abbey courtyard on Friday, July 13, 2018.

An opera rarity is being re-discovered in the form of Giacomo Puccini's "Edgar." Performed extremely rarely, this opera is a tragic story of love and jealousy revolving around Edgar, a young man who is torn between two entirely different women. With many dramatic moments including arson, a duel, fleeing lovers, a bogus monk, and an empty coffin, the work has all the ingredients you could hope for in an opera. And it is all set against the unrivaled backdrop of the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the St. Gallen Abbey precinct.

In addition to opera in the abbey courtyard, the St. Gallen Festival is also offering dance in the cathedral with the ballet "Peregrinatio," and a host of concerts on both a small and a large scale, culminating in the gala concert in the cathedral. This year, the focus will be on more modern works, by Samuel Barber, Wayne Marshall, and Leonard Bernstein.

Through its commitment, Credit Suisse is proud and delighted to be able to contribute to the success of this unique festival for the thirteenth time, and to invite you to an evening at the opera on Friday, July 13, 2018. Please complete the form below and take part in the draw for these exclusive tickets in the stand. Good luck!
