Carl Orff

Carmina Burana – tour

concert 12

September 9., Thursday 20:00

Pécs, Hungary — Dóm Square

Concert performance in the original languages, with Hungarian and English surtitles

The theatrical variant of Orff’s magical cantata debuted in 2018 in front of Erkel Theatre’s enormous, packed auditorium. Performing the piece outdoors does not provide a possibility for using the numerous projectors or moving the scenery and props otherwise suspended from the fly system, and so we are left with just the elemental music itself. But we will be making the most of the magical summer nights, which are at least equal to the theatrical milieu, ensuring that the concert performance is capable of providing the same experience. The Opera is taking this version to Pécs, Berehove, and Veszprém in the summer of 2021.

Featuring the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

The concert version of this performance is staged by András Aczél

A joint production of the Music Harvest Festival in Pécs and the Opera.

Incase of rain the performance will be held at the concert hall of the University of Pécs Medical School
