Whether accompanying the marvel and wonder of ‘The Red Balloon,’ complimenting the stunning imagery of Enchanted Rock, or adding an extra jolt of irreverence to a hilarious revised edition of ‘The Return of Draw Egan’, Montopolis delivers a unique storytelling experience with incredible scores by composer Justin Sherburn.

This week, the ensemble presents a special preview of an arrangement for the 1911 Italian silent film L’Inferno, Italy’s very first feature-length film, based on the first canticle of Dante’s Divine Comedy. Montopolis takes this work on the road next month along the West Coast, but you can experience the preview tonight, Monday Sept. 18, at Me Mer Mo Monday at Dada Lab, 2008 Alexander Ave. The event starts at 7 p.m., with a line-up that includes Sunray Project, R. Lee Dockery, and DJ sets by Chris Polcyn, with visual art by Drip/Cuts.
