The 49th edition of the two-week festival will open on 30 June 2024 with "Epilogue", John Neumeier's last world premiere for the Hamburg Ballet to date.

The production shines with the participation of international guest artists: the renowned French Schubert interpreter David Fray, the celebrated Lithuanian soprano Asmik Grigorian will perform Richard Strauss' "Four Last Songs". For the costumes, John Neumeier has enlisted Swiss designer Albert Kriemler. More...

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.

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.
