Carmina Burana back in the Netherlands

Conductor Raymond Janssen signs up with the International Symphony Orchestra from Lviv and the national choir of Ukraine 'Dumka' for a grand performance of the 'Carmina Burana'. In 2019, this concert series drew packed auditoriums and broke all records. Not for nothing is the Carmina Burana - thanks in part to the world-famous 'O Fortuna' - among the most popular pieces of music in the world. More than 130 musicians performed composer Carl Orff's musical masterpiece and public interest was massive. Audience surveys showed that the company was rated 9.2. A rating to be proud of! A reprise in 2021 was therefore inevitable. On 20 November and 20 December, Carmina Burana comes to the World Forum Theatre in The Hague

Enjoy every moment that brings happiness. This message is the central theme of the 'Carmina Burana', a musical masterpiece by composer Carl Orff. In the 13th century, itinerant monks and students - as a reaction to the strict and pious ideals of the church - sang the joys of love, drink and wanderlust. Orff used their Latin and German texts as the basis of his 'Carmina Burana' and drew inspiration from a variety of musical sources. The result is a powerful and rousing piece of music full of propulsive rhythms. Thanks in part to the exceptional choir and orchestra line-up, this makes every performance an intense experience. The most famous piece from the Carmina Burana is undoubtedly 'O Fortuna'. It has reached iconic status in 2020 and has been used in dozens of commercials, as the basis for contemporary hits and was used in films such as Excalibur and The Doors. Conductor Raymond Janssen presents an overwhelming version of this spectacular song during his performance of the Carmina Burana, which immediately becomes the highlight of the concert
