Carl Orff’s choral work Carmina Burana is comprised of twenty-four texts from the manuscript of courtly poetry and dramatic texts, set to music. These texts, collectively known as Carmina Burana, were found in 1803 in a monastery in Bavaria. Ballet Victoria’s production of the piece is a mix of dance and drama, where Paul Destrooper, Artistic Director of Ballet Victoria, explores and interprets the themes of the songs: power, corruption, over-indulgence, humour, and beauty.
