Carmina Burana - Orff's Genius Comes To Life
Despite its status as one of the most popular classical pieces of modern times, audiences still can't get enough of Carl Orff's timeless composition seventy years after its creation. The secret to its success lies in the simplicity of the piece, which when seen live makes for one of the most powerful yet distinctly enjoyable performances out there today.
For that reason alone, seeing it played out in all its glory in-person makes for a must, so be there to see it performed at a venue near you by getting your Carmina Burana tickets from StubHub UK today.
Carmina Burana - A Quintessential 20th Century Classic
Translated as 'Songs of Beuren', this world famous choral production is based on a collection of two hundred and fifty 13th century medieval poems found at the Benedictine Bavarian monastery of Benediktbeauren in 1803. Munich-born composer Carl Orff, applying his 'total theatre' concept to the work, selected twenty-four of the poems to set to music, each of which are designed to incorporate vocal soloists, choruses and instruments as well as images supposedly of a magical nature centered around the turn of the Fortuna Wheel. Upon its wildly successful debut at the Frankfurt Opera, the composer was driven to declare to his publisher that they could destroy all his previous work, such was his satisfaction with the results.
The 24-movement piece begins with the iconic 'O Fortuna', an instantly recognisable piece that still has the power to surprise despite its prevalence in popular culture today. But as anyone fortunate enough to see the entirety of the Orff creation performed live will tell you, there is so much more to this quintessential 20th century classic than that alone. So don't live to regret missing out and grab your Carmina Burana tickets from StubHub UK today.
