    L'amor che move il sole e l'altre stelle

    The 2015 edition of Ravenna Festival will be dedicated to Dante Alighieri in his 750th anniversary. This extremely significant event will also usher in a 7-year project on a two-year basis, foreseen to end in 2021, the 700th anniversary of the poet's death in Ravenna, where his mortal remains are jealously preserved and his immortal memory lovingly revered. The various stages of this project foresee a number of events the Festival will commission to contemporary artists from different sectors, along with the multidisciplinary nature of the event.

    Dante, our contemporary

    The above-mentioned video-opera, L’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle, based on the third cantica of the Commedy, almost reconfigures a new poem of light (and of sound, wildly projected into space at 360 degrees): a powerfully imaginative poem of light, exploiting digital images, Tempo Reale’s live electronics and Vincent Longuemare’s cutting-edge light designing techniques.

    Music at the time of Dante

    "Music at the time of Dante" is the title of an entire section of the Festival, an intense musical journey featuring several ensembles specializing in the medieval repertoire who, in keeping with the indissoluble link between music and poetry in the 13° and 14° centuries, will be accompanied by some well-known actors and verse-declaimers. The section will focus both on the music composed and performed by Dante's contemporaries and on the theme of music as featured in Dante's masterpieces.

    Concerts, conductors and soloists (symphonic music and more)

    A major section will be devoted to symphonic music, which will see the return of Zubin Mehta and the Orchestra of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino presenting a compelling classical-romantic programme with music by Beethoven, Wagner and Tchaikovsky. The Munich Philharmonic, conducted by Semyon Bichkov, will then propose a programme including Brahms's Third Symphony and two masterpieces of early XX-century French music: Ravel’s Concerto in G major for piano and orchestra (with extraordinary soloist Jean-Yves Thibaudet) and Claude Debussy’s La mer.

    The Tradition of the New: Boulez and Bartók

    This title, openly referred to the influential book by American art critic Harold Rosenberg, defines a new section of the Festival which aims at proposing several ‘heroic’ figures of the so-called “modern music” (or New Music), like Bartók and Boulez.

    Ballet, dance and musicals

    The Ravenna Festival always showed a keen interest in musicals, a popular form of musical theatre the results of which are often qualitatively comparable with opera. Thus, after West Side Story, Cats, Evita and Mamma Mia, the Festival now features Richard O'Brien’s masterpiece, The Rocky Horror Show, which, after debuting in 1973, is still one of the world’s favourite musicals, with an inexhaustible cult following renewed generation after generation, infected a libertarian and transgressive spirit time does not seem to tarnish.

    More music in more places

    The Festival’s programme also includes a miscellany of assorted events hosted in a variety of venues, either natural environments or quite different places, all equally beautiful.
    Technological research, an intensive dialogue between different artistic languages, a keen interest in the relationship between built and natural environment are all key elements for inventor-performer...
