Carmina Burana | Campo Pequeno
Fri: 9:30 pm; Sat: 5pm
Tickets: € 17,50 to € 70
An exuberant show that unites the power of Carl Orff’s music with the flamboyant universe of La Fura dels Baus, a 35-year-old company that stands out for its own unique language and aesthetics and thousands of fans around the world.
For Carlus Padrissa, founding member and director of the company, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is probably the most important musical work of the twentieth century.
These are poems that praise life, praise the carnal pleasures and enjoyment of human nature, while criticizing and satirizing the social and moral customs of the time: the poetic emotion of the texts that, despite being more than 800 years old, speak of desire, and bring us back to the essence of the human species … And so the cycle is completed to begin again. ”
