Maestro Anthony Gabriele returned to The Retro Festival at Luzern’s KKL Konzertsaal on 5 and 6 April to conduct Anastacia – Live at the Symphony. This marks the first time Anastacia, who has sold more than 30 million records and topped the charts in 19 countries, has performed her beloved songs with orchestra. Joined by Gabriele and the 65-musician The City Light Symphony Orchestra, Anastacia sang some of her greatest hits – including “I’m Outta Love”, “Not That Kind”, “Paid My Dues”, “Left Outside Alone” and many more.

Anastacia said, “I am very honoured to work with you. Anthony Gabriele is an amazing man, a very kind heart. He conducts with his Spirit, and I really do feel that the musicians feel that as well.”

Gabriele said, “Sharing the stage with this special lady, and basking in the warm glow of her enormous talent and generosity, was a life-enhancing experience.”
