CARMINA BURANA
Music by Carl Orff Choreography by John Butler Lighting by Thomas Skelton
CARMINA BURANA is a theatre piece based on poems discovered in the library of the ancient Bavarian Benediktbeuren Monastery. A collection of 13th Century songs and poems composed by minstrels and monks who had freed themselves of monastic discipline--they are secular rather than sacred. The ballet is an abstract landscape of movement, not a realistic retelling of the poems. The prologue bemoans the everchanging fate of man, riding, then ground under by the Wheel of Fortune. The first part sings of the delights of spring. The second part celebrates the pleasures, extravagances and despairs of the tavern. The third is a series of love poems. The epilogue returns to the plaintive bemoaning of the ruthless Wheel of Fate. Stokowski characterized Carmina, musically, as "a synthesis of beauty of melodic line, remark?able rhythmic variations; lusty vitality; immense range of mood, humor, frenzy; folklike simplicity, satire, mystery, spontaneous eloquence and tranquility . . ."
