Carmina Burana concert in Antalya
DHA PhotoThe Antalya State Opera and Ballet (ANTDOB) will perform German composer Carl Orff’s popular work “Carmina Burana” on two dates, June 13 and 17, at the Haşim İşcan Culture Center. The orchestra will be conducted by Hakan Kalkan.
The work will be performed by a choir of 120 musicians and soloists. Soprano Nurdan Aydın, tenor Devrim Demirel and baritone Serhat Konukman will share the stage with ANTDOB’s soloists during the concert.
Being inspired by more than 200 manuscripts of poems and text from the 11th and 12th centuries discovered in a monastery near Munich, Carmina Burana is Orff’s most popular work.
The themes of the songs include morality, mockery, love, drinking and gaming.
