Dante’s 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 Dante’s 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 Ballet’s trailblazing Resident Choreographer Wayne
McGregor collaborates with an award-winning team – contemporary composer Thomas
Adès, artist Tacita Dean, lighting designer Lucy Carter and dramaturg Uzma
Hameed – to bring us closer to Dante and his extraordinary vision.
World Premier screening live in the Skyroom. Approximate running time 3 hours
