Covid-19 has severely impacted the performing arts with the closure of theatres and other performance venues. But this pandemic has also taught us how important the arts is, offering us respire from all the anxiety. To show its appreciation for the musicians and singers who have brought us much joy, Rolex is debuting a concert series this week called "Perpetual Music".

Renowned opera singers and Rolex Testimonees Juan Diego Flórez, Rolando Villazón and Sonya Yoncheva will be joined by French violinist Renaud Capuçon in organising this auditory feast, which will unfold in three prestigious locations across Europe.
