What to expect:
Carl Orff: Carmina Burana
Carl Orff had the best idea of his life
In 1935, Carl Orff had the best idea of his life: he chose 24 chants from the Bavarian Codex buranus and turned them into a bawdy cantata about lust and life in medieval monasteries. Since then, his Carmina burana has been a constant favourite with audiences all over the world. The composer from Bavaria knew what he was writing about: he was buried in the monastery of Andechs, world famous for its beer, and he loved the Latin culture of ancient and medieval times, including its down-to-earth features. Two choirs from Graz, the recreation orchestra and young singers from last year’s Don Giovanni in Graz are conducted by Patrick Hahn.
The performance lasts 60-70 minutes without an interval.
