French composer Henry Barraud’s 1972 piece La Divine Comédie.
“Young Dante Alighieri inherits 17 million of his father the sausage maker on one condition – he has to give up smoking in 14 days. But the days go on and he simply can’t quit. He hires a detective agency to physically stop him. He has an uncle, who inherits the money if Dante fails, and the uncle tries to keep him smoking.” –Mattias Thuresson, IMDb
Viewing the process as a kind of personal hell, this Dante has much in common with his Florentine namesake – including a love interest named Beatrice.
