Deutsche Bank sponsors Placido Domingo's Performance Tribute to Luciano Pavarotti in Boston
Deutsche Bank today announced it is sponsoring Plácido Domingo's first ever concert appearance in Boston which also serves as a Tribute to Luciano Pavarotti. The performance, which is part of Plácido Domingo’s “Around the World Tour”, will take place on April 14, 2008, at The Wang Theater in Boston. Deutsche Bank enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Luciano Pavarotti and was a sponsor of his two farewell concerts in Dusseldorf and Stuttgart, Germany in the fall of 2005, prior to his death in 2007.
“We are honored to support the brilliant work of Maestro Domingo and the legacy of Maestro Pavarotti, two of the most beloved tenors the world has ever known,” said Seth Waugh, Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche Bank Americas. “As long-time admirers, we are thrilled to help bring this experience to our friends and neighbors in Boston.”
Deutsche Bank has been a long-time supporter of the Boston area. Since 2003, the Bank has sponsored the Deutsche Bank Championship at the TPC Boston, a PGA Playoffs event which has become a New England Labor Day tradition. In its first five years, the Championship has raised more than $10 million for charity, including its primary beneficiary, the Tiger Woods Learning Center, as well as many local New England charities. The Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau estimates that the Championship generates nearly $50 million in economic activity for the region annually.
Deutsche Bank also has a strong global commitment to supporting the performing arts. Last September, the bank sponsored the New York Metropolitan Opera Opening Night Gala for the seventh consecutive year and provided leadership support of the Met’s live transmissions of the Opening Night performance of Donizetti’s “Lucia di Lammermoor” onto outdoor screens in New York City’s Times Square and at Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza for the second year in a row.
