Dante: Parole e Musica Show – the Divine Comedy’s most famous passages with a music commentary.
St. Clement's Church
Everyone who attended the show loved it, both Italians and Americans. The structure of the show, with the alternation of readings, acting, and music, made it easy for participants to follow the show. In addition, Marco performed very well: the words were well articulated, and Marco's passion for Dante's readings was evident.
