In June 2023, the HAMBURG BALLET will present numerous guest performances as well as ballet productions by John Neumeier, including classics such as "Rome and Juliet" and "Hamlet 21". For its 48th anniversary, the Hamburg Ballet Days promise first-class entertainment.

The highlight of Hamburg Ballet John Neumeier's 50th anniversary season will be the Hamburg Ballet Days, whose 48th edition, instead of the usual two weeks, will be expanded into a four-week festival. John Neumeier will present a curated combination of important key compositions from his era. Two guest ensembles will be invited, the Royal Danish Ballet and the Stuttgart Ballet, who are closely associated with John Neumeier's work and will present works from his repertoire in Hamburg. The Federal Youth Ballet and the Hamburg Ballet School will also present their skills on the grand stage of the Hamburg State Opera.  In addition, the St. Matthew Passion returns to the place of its creation, St. Michael's Church. The four-week festival culminates in the star-studded Nijinsky Gala XLVIII, which promises a glittering conclusion to the anniversary season.
