Posted By: About Italy on November, 22 2007 in About Italy, Art, Cinema and Theatres, Rome

On the 23rd of November, for the first time in wordly presentation, will be performed in Rome “La Divina Commedia. L’ Opera”, a musical inspired to the best Italian literary work.La Divina Commedia Dante Alighieri

Ideator of the project and adaptator of Dante’s masterpiece texts for the musical is Monsignor Marco Frisina, director of the Cappella Musicale Lateranense and also author of the musics, which go from the Gregorian song to rock.

The musical is divided in two acts: in the first the public will assist to the Prologue and the representation of the Hell, in the second, Purgatory and Heaven.

The Divina Commedia will start from Rome and then continue with a long tour in many Italian cities and also in some of the most important European capitals.

The show will take place in a mobile theatre created exclusively for the event, in the area “Giovanni Paolo II”, in the Tor Vergata university campus in Rome.

The choice of the mobile theatre is related to theatral needs, to allow its movement in the various places in which the show will take place, without changing the set structure, and it’s capable of holding 2.500 people, in a fine and elegant atmosphere.

On the scene will be 24 among singers and actors, 10 acrobates and 24 participants, chosen between hundreds of people after a long casting.

The leading character, Dante Alighieri, will be represented by the great Vittorio Matteucci.

“La Divina Commedia.L’ Opera” will wait for you from Friday 23rd of November in Rome.
