Richmond Ballet Carmina Burana with Richmond Symphony & Chorus
Originally choreographed in 1959 for New York City Opera, John Butler’s powerful, impassioned masterwork, Carmina Burana, uses the full breadth of Carl Orff’s choral score to explore the melding of classical ballet’s structure with the earthiness of contemporary dance. Sixty years after its creation, Carmina Burana remains a monumental and moving audience favorite.
