Opera Stars Support Blind and Visually Impaired Children


The picture entitled, “Immagini di Gioia” by Hanns Schwarzmaier (1989) was donated by the ZIRM Privatklinik and autographed by well-known personalities of the Vienna State Opera such as Anna Netrebko, Elina Garanca and Leo Nucci, among others, to benefit the project, augenblicke der hoffnung (moments of hope).

Viennese gastronome Aki Nuredini is exhibiting the painting in his restaurant, ‘Sole’ in Vienna, Annagasse 8-10, where Schwarzmaier and many other international artists meet.
