ORFF Catulli Carmina
ORFF Carmina Burana

Arguably, the most iconic choral work of the 20th century, Carmina Burana’s unforgettable opening, “O Fortuna,” has become a pop culture phenomenon. Based on medieval German poetry, Carmina Burana has it all: rhythmic and brooding choruses, lusty drinking songs, ballads cursing fickle lovers and gleaming paeans to love. Catulli Carmina brings all of the boldness and audacious storytelling its more famous sibling piece is know for to complete a program that will thrill and delight. Many may not have heard the Catulli Carmina, one of the two sequels Orff wrote to Carmina Burana, but, in a rare pairing, you will get to hear them both together as Orff intended with our four critically acclaimed soloists, the Dallas Symphony Chorus, the Children’s Chorus of Greater Dallas and the DSO.


“Soprano Audrey Luna is perhaps best known for singing stratospheric soprano roles in Thomas Adès’s operas The Tempest and The Exterminating Angel. Her ability to move instantly from the bottom of her range to the top while maintaining sweetness of sound served her well here. Her movements In trutina mentis dubia and Dulcissime were close to perfect.”

Timothy Robson, Backtrack, August 2018
