Carmina Burana

Concert or Performance

15 Jun 2019 to 16 Jun 2019

Concert Performance
This noteworthy arrangement of the popular cantata Carmina Burana, written in 1956 by Carl Orff’s student Wilhelm Killmayer, was authorised by Orff himself as suitable for chamber performances of this large scale work. This staple piece of the classical repertoire, with its famous, dramatic and often used opening and closing chorus “O Fortuna”, is based on a collection of poems, written by Bavarian monks between the 11th and 13th century. While the poetry seems mostly bawdy, irreverent, and satirical in nature, it provides a glimpse into the true medieval mind. It seems that pleasures and woes of modern life have not changed much since, strongly suggesting that we shall always be at the whim of that eternal turning wheel: “O Fortuna, life’s only constant is change!”
With nearly 90 people on stage, including some of Tasmania’s finest singers and musicians, this not-to-be-missed concert promises to depict all the naughty, tender and raucous sounds and scenes of Carl Orff’s masterpiece, which not only has delighted audiences around the world for nearly 85 years but continues to do so.
