We understand that this news will cause disruption and disappointment, however the safety and wellbeing of audiences, staff, volunteers and the community remains our primary concern.

We hope to be able to reschedule shows that were due to take place between now the end of the year (2020), and we’ll be getting in touch with our customers to offer tickets to rescheduled shows, a voucher or refund. However, the impact of COVID-19 is a critical threat to the Buccleuch Centre’s future and we need your support.

Otherwise, all ticket holders to cancelled shows will receive exchanges, vouchers or full refunds.

Dante’s Divine Comedy is an epic journey through the afterlife: it encompasses the horrifying drama of Inferno and its damned, the lyrical mysticism of pilgrims on mount Purgatorio and the dazzling spheres of Paradiso with their endless configurations of light. The poem was inspired by the agony of Dante’s own exile, and traces his path from crisis to revelation guided by his literary hero Virgil and his lost love Beatrice. In this new work, The Royal Ballet’s trailblazing Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor collaborates with an award-winning team – contemporary composer Thomas Adès, artist Tacita Dean, lighting designer Lucy Carter and dramaturg Uzma Hameed – to bring us closer to Dante and his extraordinary vision.
