Carl Orff

Carmina Burana – tour

concert version concert 12

Concert performance in the original languages, with Hungarian and English surtitles

O Fortuna. Everyone knows the overwhelmingly powerful opening motifs of Carl Orff's most famous work. What fewer people know is that Carmina Burana was not intended to be an oratorical work, but was instead expressly meant for the stage. This becomes clear from the piece's (originally Latin) subtitle: “Secular songs for singers and chorus to be sung together with instruments and magical images.”

Featuring the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

The concert version of this performance is staged by András Aczél
