Leonard Ajkun's voyage into the depths of Inferno (Italian for "Hell") fuses history, art and symbolism with the craft of contemporary ballet. Barren from the usual confinements of storytelling, Ajkun's view of the conflict between Lucifer and Michael is surrounded by powerful Angels and luscious Devils in an emotional roller coaster certain to raise "a hell" of a lot of questions in the human mind.
