STORYLINE
Marking United Nations Day, on the 75th anniversary of the entry into force of the UN Charter, Secretary-General António Guterres today (22 Oct) reiterated his appeal for a global ceasefire “so we can devote all our energies to fighting COVID-19.” This year’s UN Day concert included a prerecorded performance featuring Roberto Bolle, and the Orchestra of Teatro alla Scala, in Milan.

Introducing the performance, General Assembly President Volkan Bozkir said, “at nearly 250-years old, La Scala remains one of the worlds’ leading opera and ballet theatres, attracting the finest performers, from all corners of the globe. It is beautiful and fitting that this revered institution should help us recognize the UN, as it turns the relatively young age of 75.”

Since 1954, with the completion of the General Assembly Hall at UN Headquarters in New York, UN Day has been celebrated with a concert. It is an occasion for renowned musicians to highlight, celebrate and reflect on the UN’s work and agenda through the universal language of music.
