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.
