Onoriamo l’altissimo poeta

Onorate l’altissimo poeta: Lectura Dantis e musica ispirata alla Divina Commedia

Si tratta di un’occasione imperdibile per avvicinare o approfondire la grande arte del sommo poeta italiano, Dante Alighieri, con letture interpretate in italiano da attori professionisti provenienti dall’Italia e in inglese da prestigiosi attori canadesi. Le letture saranno accompagnate dall’esecuzione di brani di musiche ispirate alla Divina Commedia con musicisti del più elevato livello internazionale, dall’Italia il gruppo Benedetto Marcello e dal Canada i Tafel Music. Ci sarà inoltre una prima mondiale di un compositore italo-canadese, Ennio Paolo. È un avvenimento davvero da non perdere per introdurre i vostri figli o nipoti alle tematiche e sonorità della Divina Commedia, una delle vette più elevate della poesia italiana e fondativa della letteratura mondiale. Oppure potrete essere voi a lasciarvi cullare per un intero pomeriggio dalla dolcezza del canto  lirico italiano nelle parole e rime del suo altissimo poeta
