An Encore cinema screening of a world premiere performance by The Royal Ballet.

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, in collaboration with an award-winning team, creates a world premiere to bring us closer to Dante and his extraordinary vision.

Running Time: approx 3h
