46th Hamburg Ballet Days
It is with joy and optimism that we present our programme for this year's Hamburg Ballet Days. The festival will be opened by "Hamlet 21", a new version of John Neumeier's ballet "Hamlet" whose revival at the end of March 2020 was prevented by the Corona pandemic. For the first time in the history of the Hamburg Ballet Days, the "Nijinsky Gala" (the program) is scheduled for two consecutive performances. Except for "A Midsummer Night's Dream", all further productions of the festival will also be performed twice: "Ghost Light", "Beethoven Project II", "Death in Venice" and "Beethoven Project I".
Back to the Future
In a conversation regarding this brochure in Peter Schmidt's studio, the phrase "back to the future" came to mind as an expression of the hope that the long tradition of the Hamburg Ballet will soon return to normality and continue developing into the future.
Honorary Medal "Ingenio et arti"
Queen Margrethe II of Denmark has awarded John Neumeier the medal "Ingenio et arti" following the premiere of his ballet "Third Symphony of Gustav Mahler" at the Royal Opera House Copenhagen on May 19. Established in 1841, the "Ingenio and arti" medal is a personal award of Danish monarchs given for meritorious services to distinguished personalities from the worlds of arts and science.
