About The Event

“Inferno Opera Rock” was born from an idea of Francesco Maria Gallo, interpreter and author of the music and lyrics based on a selection of 11 songs from Dante Alighieri's Inferno, on the 700th anniversary of his death.

It is an intimate florilege, in which the singer-songwriter and the author of the Rock Opera - accepting the opening piece, the "Selva Oscura" which brings back the original verses of Dante's preface - overwrites his own free interpretation of the chosen songs, through the music, combined with an original writing around the suggestions and the protagonists of the songs themselves.

Synopsis Inferno Opera Rock

We are then witnessing the re-elaboration of one's own Inferno, redesigned according to a personal point of view, as if to identify another self of Rimbaudian derivation which, from time to time, recomposes the various figures, captured in the most human aspect - The giant of Ulysses , Pier's Silence, Count Ugolino - to anchor the mythical descent into the underworld to an almost interior journey. In the balance between a lucid analysis of defeat - desolation - and the hope of a heartfelt way out of one's limits. For Francesco Maria the damned is also the cosmic human in search of a sort of redemption, or a personal counterpoint.
