On the stage of the Hvorostovsky Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre, the cantata Carmina Burana to the music by Karl Orff will be presented after an extended break on January 12 and 1.
Orff's Carmina Burana is a spectacular large-scale show, a miracle-play for soloists, chorus, orchestra, and ballet. Several principal ballet dancers will have their debuts in the cantata: Elena Mikheevicheva will perform the part of the Bride for the first time, Chitose Tsuchia will come to the stage as the Girl, Daniil Kostylev - as the Dictator.
Carmina Burana had been performed at the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre for over 20 years: the premiere of the mystery cantata took place on January 8, 1999.
The concert version of it was presented to the audience of the Krasnoyarsk Opera and Ballet Theatre earlier in 1997. Later, Honoured Artist, choreographer Alexander Polubentsev from St. Petersburg created the stage edition for the first time in Russia. In 2000, Carmina Burana was nominated for the Golden Mask.
The cantata’s author Carl Orff was not just a composer, but rather “a man of a theatre”. Therefore, his masterpiece combines music with vocals, dance with pantomime, scenery with light, like it was in medieval mystery plays. It includes 24 poems mostly in secular Latin verse, with a small amount of Middle High German, Old Provençal, and Old French, belonging to the poets-errant of the High Middle Ages. Despite the old literary basis, Carmina Burana is really as modern as ever are the themes of life and death, love and loneliness, joy and suffering.
