Latin verses, monks, nuns, debauchery and feasting a plenty.

Carl Orff’s realisation of these medieval texts has delighted and inspired audiences across the world for decades. From the opening chorusO Fortunato the roasting of the swan and the silvery soprano peals of sound, this is the musical pinnacle of all choral singing, operatic voices and orchestral splendour. It has become one of the most recognised and famous pieces of music of all time, and a staple of film and television commercials, especially in the portrayal of the dramatic or cataclysmic. Take this rare opportunity to experience the great phenomenon that isCarmina Burana.
