Valery Gergiev, the legendary Russian conductor and general director of the Mariinsky Theatre, claimed that the upcoming Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum is ‘destined to find solutions and realise the potential of so many millions of people’ at the premiere of Giuseppe Verdi's opera ‘Falstaff’ in Saint Petersburg on Wednesday. According to Gergiev, ‘business elite from all over the... Еще world should come together, in Saint Petersburg also, but of course it can happen in Europe, it can happen in Asia.’ “I am a big a supporter of this approach –sit down, talk and discuss. You will find a way. A win-win situation is clearly there for so many,” the Russian conductor added. The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will be held on May 24-26. Around 15,000 guests from more than 100 countries are expected to participate.
