Inferno is the first of a three part composition inspired by the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri.

The Divina consists of three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio & Paradiso. When Italian writer Dante Alighieri created this body of work at the beginning of the 14th century, he relocated its setting behind a veil or curtain. This veil is our darkened, 'normal' consciousness that concerns itself solely with the material manifestations of this world. This consciousness does not possess a real spiritual aspect in the absolutely pure sense of the word. According to Dante, mankind, living in today’s state of consciousness – when compared to the purely spiritual – finds itself in a state of deep slumber. However, mankind is not aware of this fact. Although conceived more than 600 years ago, the spiritual heritage of The Divine Comedy is continuously aimed at the present – at the human being living in the here and now.

On this DVD you will experience the concert performance of Tangerine Dream within a very special setting. An old castle near Cologne in Germany is forming the backdrop of this first part of Dante's trilogy. Together with this musical performance, you will see quite a few off stage images shot during the rehearsals and the set up on various locations including interviews of some of the participants.

Including bonus material!
