Ravenna Festival 2024

“E fu sera e fu mattina” (“And the evening and the morning” – Genesis I) is the title of the 35th edition of RAVENNA FESTIVAL, presenting a rich programme of events – from music to ballet and theatre from 11th May to 9 July 2024.

The title of this year’s edition uses the words that mark the succession of the days of the Creation in the Genesis, highlighting the effects of climate change on our planet, opting for new sustainable practices for live shows, but also the value of creativity as a resource for inclusive and multi-cultural communities.

Following the opening on 11th May with Riccardo Muti and Wiener Philarmoniker, the festival goes on with Kirill Petrenko and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, Sir Simon Rattle with the Chamber Ochestra of EuropeFilippo Gorini and David Fray with violinist Renaud Capuçon.

Among the guest artist: Eleonora Abbagnato, protagonist of the International dance gala, Sergio Bernal, Giovanni Sollima, Mario Brunello, Accademia Bizantina, Michele Campanella

The programme also features various theatre shows, with the journey into non-European literature of Grande Teatro di Lido Adriani, with Panchatantra, o le mirabolanti avventure di Kalila e Dimna; the adventure of Don Chisciotte ad ardere with Marco Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari of Teatro delle Albe/Ravenna Teatro and Fanny & Alexander with Nina, featuring the award-winning American soprano Claron McFadden.

Don’t miss the special programme Romagna in fiore, hosted in some of the areas that were most terribly involved in last year’s flooding of Romagna, with afternoon concerts without great stages and artificial lights in great open-air locations.

Ravenna Festival also touches other locations out of town, such as Cervia-Milano Marittima with Laura MoranteMargherita VicarioPupi Avati and Paolo Fresu; Pavaglione in Lugo with Colapesce e DimartinoHildur Gudnadóttir e John De Leo and Palazzo S.
