Ballet Festival Week 2023

At the beginning of April, the Bavarian State Ballet traditionally stages the Ballet Festival Week. Founded in 1960 by the then ballet director Heinz Rosen, the festival presents the highlights of the current season between 31 March and 8 April 2023 at the National Theatre.

The ballet festival week kicks off with the premiere evening Schmetterling, which includes two works by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot.

The choreographer duo, who headed the Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) for 18 years, will thus present a work in Munich for the first time. This year's story ballets of the festival week are all about love: A Midsummer Night's Dream  by John Neumeier, Romeo and Juliet by John Cranko and Christopher Wheeldon's fairytale adaptation Cinderella. The three-part evening Passages will be contemporary and varied with choreographies by David Dawson (Affairs of the Heart), Alexei Ratmansky (Pictures at an Exhibition) and Marco Goecke (Sweet Bones' Melody). The finale is Alexei Ratmansky's Tchaikovsky Overtures, which premieres in December 2022.

Over-the-counter sales (online, by phone and at the box office) for the entire Ballet Festival week begin on Tue, 28.02.23.
