The grand finale of the Hamburg Ballet season 2016/17 will be the famous Nijinsky Gala with a new slogan "Inspired by Russia" at the Hamburg State Opera on June, 16.

The annual gala which is always dedicated to a dance-specific or ballet-historical theme features dancers of the John Neumeier's Hamburg Ballet and internationally acclaimed guest stars. It is a perfect chance to see a lot of Hamburg Ballet's repertoire as well as extracts from various ballets of other choreographers in one, very full, evening. Artem Ovcharenko will perform the pas de deux from Le Sylphide alongside the Bolshoi prima ballerina Anastasia Stashkevich.
