Carmina Burana

August 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$28 – $128

The Singapore and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras and Choruses join forces to present the choral-orchestral spectacular of Carmina Burana, Carl Orff’s grandiloquent 1937 oratorio. The “Songs of Beuren” is based on 13th century songs celebrating all manner of life’s pursuits – from sacred prayers to bawdy tavern songs, reincarnated through a modern orchestra in kaleidoscopic colour and rhythmic vivacity, amplifying its vibrant and earthy humour. It’s a stunning experience that’s absolutely not to be missed, as is the lineup of fanfares, firebirds and flamenco in this exciting collaboration.
