Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. Let us begin our list of Rolex Lady Datejust celebrity ambassadors with New Zealand’s Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, one of the most successful opera singers of our time.
Dame Kiri boasts of a Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording in 1984. A BBC Radio 2 opera contest was named after Dame Kiri (its called the Kiri Prize competition). The winner, Shuna Scott Sendall, went on to perform with the Dame in a concert in Hyde Park. Of course, there are other prizes too the coolest of which is a music scholarship in Italy.
Sophie Mautner. Next in our list of Rolex Lady Datejust celebrity ambassadors is German pianist Sophie Mautner who’s featured in the Lady Datejust Pearlmaster advert below.
Sophie is a child prodigy who started playing piano at the age of five. She trained under Karl-Heinz Kammerlig when she was eight years old following the recommendation of Ingeborg Wunder, a professor at the Music Conservatoire in Berlin. Sophie won a German Echo-Klasik prize in 1996 for her debut CD released under the Sony label.
Renee Fleming. Talented American soprano Renee Fleming stars in the next Lady Datejust advert. Trivia on Renee Fleming: She’s got a dessert named after her – the La Diva Renée – by famous French chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud.
Ekaterina Gordeeva. Russian Olympic figure-skating champion Ekaterina Gordeeva stars in an ad highlighting her grace under pressure which, apparently, also is an apt description for Lady Datejust watches. Katya has two Olympic gold medals in pairs figure skating which she won with her late husband Sergei Grinkov.
Cecilia Bartoli. Last but not the least in our list of Rolex Lady Datejust celebrity ambassadors is Italian opera singer Cecilia Bartoli. She has a Grammy Award, won in 2011, for Best Classical Vocal Performance. In 1995, she was also honored as a Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
