Orff, Carmina Burana

We close our season with Orff’s awe inspiring and universally loved masterpiece. Carmina Burana, completed in 1936, is a choral tour de force that sets medieval texts against music that ranges from lyrical to rhythmically erotic. Experience the New Mexico Symphonic Chorus and full orchestra in the unparalleled power and passion of one of the greatest works in the choral repertoire. O Fortuna!
