Incanto Dante is the new 4-year project entirely dedicated to the figure of the 'Supreme Poet' Dante Alighieri, from 2018 until 2021, which takes place in one of the most important venues in Ravenna linked to his memory, the Basilica of San Francesco.
The event will take place on Sundays, from January to October, and it consists of readings from his major work, the Divine Comedy.
The readings of the canticas are a handover of voices, orchestra, soloists and choir - moreover, there will be reciting actors and the musical interpretation of Dante's words by the Cappella Musicale di San Francesco. Furthermore, some important scholars - three on each date - will make an introduction to the readings of the day.
Readings coordination and adaptation are curated by Chiara Lagani and Consuelo Battiston (E production/Fanny & Alexander-Menoventi). The project involves well-known voices of the local theatre field. Music by Soloists, Choir and by Orchestra Della Cappella Musicale della Basilica di San Francesco, Artistic direction by Cooperativa Mosaici Sonori
