Dante in the Chapel

What do you know about Dante’s Divine Comedy?…  Well, if you’ve read it, you’ll surely recognize a lot of it in this show, if not, you’ll get an impressionistic view of what it’s about…
In any case, you can let yourself be lead by this dramatic programme of music, dance, and poetry through Dante’s vision of Hell, Purgatory and Paradise.

Come and watch “Dante in the Chapel”, presented by Ballet in Small Spaces, on Sunday 28th November 2010, at 8pm, in the Chapel of Mansfield College,  Mansfield Road, Oxford (OX1 3TF).

Musicians of the Cappé Sextet will perform work by Beethoven, Ligeti, Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Jeremy Thurlow and Roxanna Panufnik.  “That Second Realm” composed by Jeremy Thurlow, and “This Paradise” by Roxanna Panufnik have been choreographed by Susie Crow and will be performed by seven Oxford dancers: Laura Addison, Emily Coats, Jane Connelly, Dana Mills, Katie Swancutt, Ségolène Tarte, Giulia Wegner.  Extracts from The Divine Comedy will be read by poet and Dante translator, Robin Kirkpatrick. This programme, originating in last year’s Experience Dante project at Robinson College, Cambridge, was presented in July at the Cambridge Summer Music Festival. http://www.concert-diary.com/concert/64178650/The-Dante-Project-Ballet-in-Small-Spaces
