The Dante Project
Author(s): Wayne McGregor
Company: The Royal Ballet and Paris Opera Ballet
The Dante Project is inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy.
It follows the poet’s journey as he traverses through the shifting spheres of the afterlife—from the drama of Inferno, to the dazzling spheres of Paradiso with their endless configurations of light.
The production features a score by composer-conductor Thomas Adès, design by artist Tacita Dean, lighting design by Lucy Carter and Simon Bennison and dramaturgy by Uzma Hameed.
