Alone in the woods having strayed from the path; a human at his lowest ebb. That’s the beginning of Dante's »Inferno«; a nightmare of one's own life. In the circles of Hell, Dante encounters enemies and companions. Excess, greed and betrayal have brought them here. With tremendous poetic power, Dante draws a vivid picture of the horrors of Hell, which are all the more frightening as they resemble the barbarism of this world.

Dante's three-part Divine Comedy has influenced European cultural history like no other work. Deeply anchored in Italy's cultural memory, its reception in Germany has been more problematic. The text seems too puzzling with too many political allusions. The Italian composer Lucia Ronchetti, has taken on »Inferno«and composed an opera for both actors and singers. Heavily influenced by wind and percussion instruments, she invents a spectacular sound scape for Dante's hellish circles.
