On Tour to the Nervi Festival

To mark the glittering conclusion of John Neumeier's 51-year era as Chief Choreographer and Director of the Hamburg Ballet, the company will make a guest appearance at the international Nervi Music Ballet Festival 2024 on July 19 and 20. On the initiative of Genoese First Soloist Jacopo Bellussi, designated Artistic Director of the Nervi Ballet Festival from 2025, the Hamburg Ballet will present John Neumeier's adaptation of William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in the open-air theatre in the enchanting setting of the Nervi Parks. The Nervi Music Ballet Festival continues the great tradition of the historic Nervi Ballet Festival founded by Mario Porcile in 1954, which was one of the most important festivals on the European dance scene until the early 2000s.

It's off to Venice!

In January 2025, the Hamburg Ballet will perform abroad for the first time under the direction of Demis Volpi. For five performances of "Romeo and Juliet", the dancers will be guests at the renowned Teatro La Fenice and dance John Neumeier's first full-length ballet to the music of Sergei Prokofiev for the first time in Venice. The guest performance continues the long friendship that connects the Hamburg Ballet and the world-famous theatre in the heart of the lagoon city: the Hamburg Ballet made its first guest appearance at La Fenice in 1975 and has been there five more times since then, most recently in 2023 with John Neumeier's ballet "Lady of the Camellias".
