Franceconcert presents 'Carmina Burana', one of the most popular musical and choreographic masterpieces of the 20th century.

Based on a collection of lyric poems, 'Carmina Burana' was composed by Carl Orff between 1935 and 1936. Presented for the first time in 1937 at the Opera of Frankfurt, this masterful work has captivated audiences ever since, leaving no one unmoved. The most known part, 'O Fortuna', resumed in the end of the piece, is today world-famous.

Interpreted with passion and power by choirs and soloists, these profane and Latin songs tell us a story of life and death, fate and above all, love. About 200 artists sing about the joy of the return of the spring and the pleasures of alcohol, play with the wheel of fate, dance love and lust. This new production seizes sensuality and emotion of this musical phenomenon to show that music, movement, and speech are inseparable.

A major success of the 20th century played all over the world, this original and fervent piece will go for a big European tour from November 2025.
