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 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.

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.
