French opera comes for ‘Carmina Burana’
France’s unique opera ballet ensemble, the Bordeaux National Opera will perform ‘Carmina Burana’ at Istanbul’s Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall.Istanbul art enthusiasts are set to enjoy a two-day visual and audio extravaganza with performances by the Bordeaux National Orchestra Ballet Ensemble.
Admired by millions around the globe, “Carmina Burana” will take the stage at Istanbul’s Cemal Reşit Rey (CRR) Concert Hall on April 5 and 6.
The Bordeaux National Opera is a unique opera with a well-regarded ballet ensemble in France. Managed by Charles Jude since 1996, the Bordeaux National Opera Ballet Ensemble successfully performs remarkable modern and contemporary choreographies from last century and the contemporary world in addition to well-known classical ballet works.
Coming to Turkey together with the ensemble, Argentinean choreographer Maurice Wainrot will salute the Istanbul audience with the “Carmina Burana” and “Chopin Numero Uno” choreographies for the first time.
The world-famous “Carmina Burana Stage Cantata” by Carl Orff will also be combined into dance, lyric and music in Wainrot’s choreography, which is partly inspired by black humor. It is masterly converted into a ballet performance that describes the states, incoherence and passion of the life of human beings.
Choreographed by Wainrot for his own ensemble, El Ballet Contamporaneo del Teatro San Martin, for the first time in 2011, and inspired from the lyricism of Chopin’s “1. Piano Concerto,” the show is a very special and striking choreography that emphasizes intense poetry.
