Gruberova tribute concert in 2022
Under the auspices of the 5th Festival Lyrique en Tronçais,
a Gruberova tribute concert will take place:
June 30, 2022, Néris-les-Bains, France, Théâtre André Messager
Klára Kolonits (soprano)
Maxime Neyret (piano)
The programme will consist of arias from Edita Gruberova's repertoire and
also of a few arias which she has never sung but could have sung.
Tickets are already on sale. Tickets are not to exact seats but
to categories. In addition to the purchase of tickets, it is
simultaneously possible to pay a donation of any amount (in EUR)
in support of the concert.
Those who donate will have priority in the assignment
of seats, and will later be provided access to the recording of the concert.
If possible, a simultaneous webcast will also be provided.
Those who do not want to purchase tickets but wish to
support the event, can support the concert at https://www.helloasso.com/associations/festival-lyrique-en-troncais/collectes/tribute-concert-to-edita-gruberova-with-klara-kolonits. (In the line "Other amount" you can specify any amount, in EUR.)

The least complicated (though not the absolute cheapest) way to get to Néris-les-Bains seems to be to fly to Clermont-Ferrand (Air France flies there from Paris CDG)
and take a taxi or rent a car, especially if you are pressed for time. If multiple fans team up, they could share the expenses.
Please indicate your interest to the maintainer of this page or to the organizers of the festival.
