Carmina Burana

When Carl Orff penned those first notes of “O Fortuna”, a hymn to the wildly capricious Roman goddess of fortune, he had no idea it would become one of the most recognised pieces of music of the 20th century. While Carmina Burana remains the only major work in his catalog, it has gone on to become a favourite of choirs and orchestras and yes, even film directors. The work draws its inspiration from 11th, 12th and 13th century Latin texts poeticising clerical satire to vagabond songs. This phantasmal and monolithic work is a delight to behold, and we are glad to bring it to the stage at the Frankston Arts Centre in a once-off performance. A night not to be missed!
