Dudamel Leads Adès’ Dante

Thu / Apr 8, 2021 - 8:00PM

Adès’ wildly received Inferno leads off his complete Dante, with Dudamel conducting.


About this Performance

Thomas Adès called his Inferno “a grateful tribute to Franz Liszt, the composer of hell and demonic music.” When Gustavo Dudamel conducted the premiere in the 2018/19 season, it received a standing ovation before it came to a full stop, and the Los Angeles Times called it “ambitious and electrifying.” Inferno makes up one chapter of a full-length Dante ballet wherein “each movement has a vivid musical character, with Adès’ flamboyant and whimsical take on Liszt and Tchaikovsky.” This season, experience heaven, hell, and the in-between when Inferno returns alongside the U.S. premieres of Purgatory and Paradise.
