A city featuring 8 UNESCO monuments meets a rich programme of events – symphonic music, dance, rock, theatre, opera, musical – to choose from: every year the Festival turns the city into a stage, from the ancient basilicas shining with mosaics to the theatres, from the historic buildings to the pine grove and the urban landscape. Take your chance to discover Ravenna and its Festival, and customise your package. A wide selection of activities and special rates for groups are waiting for you!
The 29th edition of Ravenna Festival (June 1-July 22) pays homage to Martin Luther King, an icon of the Civil Rights Movements, with the title We Have a Dream: 50 years after his death, his words offers the chance for a mosaics of themes. On the one hand, the programme runs In the veins of America - the land of dreams par excellence - and on the other it celebrates the resiliency of music under oppression in the section The new found song of the lyre. Among the dreams the Festival has always dreamt, the bridge of brotherhood of The Roads of Friendship reaches Kiev this year; in Ravenna Riccardo Muti will also lead the Orchestra del Maggio Fiorentino in the concert Macbeth. On the podium also Wayne Marshall, Valery Gergiev, Dennis Russel Davies, David Fray, and James Conlon; while the dance section features Bill T. Jones and Emio Greco (respectively with A Letter to My Nephew and Apparition). The programme also showcases Cole Porter’s musical Kiss Me Kate, a large section dedicated to theatrical performances, and the invasion of the 100 electric guitars. Last but not least the double daily appointment, with the tribute to Dante in the Cloister by his Tomb (every morning at 11) and the concerts of the Vespers at San Vitale (every evening at 7).
