Ravenna Festival • 2019
Different venues of Ravenna
Dates: from 05/06/2019 to 16/07/2019
This will be a very important year for Ravenna Festival, which, from 5 June to 16 July 2019, will celebrate its thirty years, offering, as usual, a surprising programme with big guests and shows of the first order.
Starting from the verses of the Divine Comedy "Per l'alto mare aperto" ("into the deep illimitable main"), which is the leitmotiv of this new season, the festival will go on a journey into the origin of the Western society, trying to discover the oriental part hidden in it.
With this subject as a point of departure, Ravenna will liven up with many events dedicated to dance, culture, music with a programme rich of prestigious and beloved artists and performances that will be able to celebrate the history of the city such as Young Artists for Dante, Vespers of San Vitale and the Sunday liturgies In templo Domini.
Beyond the already known events (the inauguration of the festival with Maestro Riccardo Muti and Maurizio Pollini, the performance by the Hamburg Ballett and the live concert by Ben Harper), the stage will also welcome the Oscar-awarded Nicola Piovani, drummer and founder of Pink Floyd Nick Mason, drummer of The Police Stewart Copeland and Goran Bregovic. And if all this is not enough, other names are awaited such as Francesco De Gregori, Neri Marcorè and Peppe Servillo.
This is a very important birthday that will touch many places in the city and beyond. Besides the classical venues Pala De Andrè and Dante Alighieri Theatre, other places like Palazzo San Giacomo in Russi, the new Classis Museum, the area of Darsena PopUp, the "Pavaglione" in Lugo and the Diego Fabbri Theatre in Forlì will welcome some events of the festival.
