Rolls-Royce 100th Anniversary Celebration
2004 is the year of the 100th anniversary of the Rolls-Royce brand worldwide. Exactly 100 years ago, the historic meeting of Charles Rolls and Henry Royce took place in Manchester, and it is from this day that the most legendary brand of the century originates. The honorable mission of celebrating the anniversary of Rolls-Royce in Russia was entrusted to Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Moscow, a member of the Musa Motors International Automobile Association. The scale of the event itself suggested its location. The jubilee event took place on June 23 at the State Bolshoi Theater of Russia, and was opened by the premiere of Richard Wagner's opera The Flying Dutchman directed by the outstanding German director Peter Konwichny.
