For eighteen seasons spanning a timeframe from 1998 to 2016, Ivan Liška has shaped the Bavarian State Ballet with his vision. Right at the very beginning of his time in Munich, named the popular, recurring gala evening based on the muse of dance Terpsichore.


The Terpsichore-Gala XII will be an homage to Ivan Liška for which the program will be curated in collaboration with his ensemble. The evening will be a throwback to eighteen years of choreographic adventures and risk-taking and an outlook on the future. A positive future, which Ivan Liška will help shape as the successor of Konstanze Vernon as the director of the Heinz-Bosl-Foundation.
