La Divina Commedia
Between heaven and hell

Dante’s epic poem La Divina Commedia reports the imaginary journey through hell (Inferno), along purgatory (Purgatorio), up to heaven (Paradiso). From August 4 to 13, the programme of the MAfestival 2017 shuttles between heaven and hell.

War & Peace in Lissewege

 

 

The festival day in Lissewege is dedicated to War & Peace. Ensemble Plus Ultra performs Cristóbal de Morales’ Missa L’homme armé, one of the supreme polyphonic masses through which the age old song of the armed man resounds.

War as an inferno
GoneWest

 

In the context of GoneWest, the artistic commemoration of World War I by the province of West-Flanders, MAfestival Bruges pays homage to wartime composers. Heinrich Schütz, John Jenkins and William are central in this respect.
