Royal Opera House: The Dante Project

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Dantes Divine Comedy is an epic journey through the afterlife: it encompasses the horrifying drama of Inferno and its damned, the lyrical mysticism of pilgrims on mount Purgatorio and the dazzling spheres of Paradiso with their endless configurations of light. The poem was inspired by the agony of Dantes own exile, and traces his path from crisis to revelation guided by his literary hero Virgil and his lost love Beatrice. In this new work, The Royal Ballets trailblazing Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor collaborates with an award-winning team - contemporary composer Thomas Ads, artist Tacita Dean, lighting designer Lucy Carter and dramaturg Uzma Hameed - to bring us closer to Dante and his extraordinary vision.The Royal BalletMusic: Thomas AdsChoreography: Wayne McGregorConductor: Koen KesselsOrchestra of the Royal Opera House(12A as live) | Approx. running time: about 3 hours
