The article is devoted to one of the most striking embodiments of the work iconic for the whole world literature - The Divine Comedy by  Dante Alighieri - in the musical opus by Robert Smith, a contemporary American composer. The author draws figurative parallels between the literary source and the composition of the composer, and defines the ways of interaction between musical form and content revealing their involvement in the synthesis of arts. The article focuseson the factors that Robert Smith refers to helping the audience/listener understand the image-and-content components of the Dante poem, in particular, on use of principles of instrumental theater (singing and reciting by members of the orchestra). The author when considering one musical opus has undertaken its integral analysis that implies a contextual approach to the phenomenon under study. The symphony by Robert Smith appears as a literary and musical manifesto of the composer, the main meaning of which is to instruct the young generation on moral and aesthetic rightness. The work is considered in stages (one part after another) to reach a deeper understanding of the general concept.
