Monday, November 16, 1992 at 8pm
The Fondation pour Genève, in awarding its 1992 Prize to Hugues Gall, during a ceremony at the Grand Théâtre de Genève on Monday, November 16, wished to support the cultural influence of Geneva. The previous prizes in 1978, 1982 and 1990 honored the international, institutional and political aspects of Geneva.
This ceremony took place in the presence of Mr. Dominique Follmi, President of the State Council of the Republic and Canton of Geneva, Mrs. Madeleine Rossi, Mayor of Geneva
and Mrs. Elisabeth Salina Amorini, President of the Cercle du Grand Théâtre, as well as a large, well-informed and warm audience.
In his speech, Mr. Dominique Micheli, President of the Foundation for Geneva, noted that the Foundation had awarded its Prize to the man of culture and efficient manager Hugues Gall, General Director of the Grand Théâtre for more than twelve years, whose talent has made Geneva’s opera scene one of the ten best in the world. During this tribute, he recalled the considerable contribution of the Grand Théâtre to the influence of Geneva.
The recital that Samuel Ramay offered on this occasion gave all the panache it deserved to this exceptional evening open to the public, and also marked by a remarkable performance of the Grand Théâtre Choir.
