Carmina burana

An encounter with the mind-blowing Goddess Fortuna deals three seminarians a major lesson in the fickle nature of fate. Compelled to abandon their sacred studies to pursue a more sensual approach to life, forbidden pleasures and physical temptations quickly become the young men¹s most eager areas of revision. Soon the young celebrants are soaring with passion, love and alcohol.

BRB's Artistic Director David Bintley's acclaimed Carmina burana is a thrilling, large-scale production, presented with Carl Orff's dramatic and emotionally charged music. Inspired by the satirical writings of medieval priests, Orff's rousing choral tour de force is a feast in its own right. Bintley's breathtaking choreography ensures an unforgettable experience.
