Book Tickets for ROH Ballet: The Dante Project (World Premiere)
28 May 2020 19:15 - 22:15
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 Choregrapher, Wayne McGregor, collaborates with an award-winning team to bring us close to Dante and his extraordinary vision.
