‘Carmina Burana’ by La Fura will give the starting shot of the 55th Ohrid Summer Festival de Macedonia

Published 01/07/2015

The successful tour of Carmina Burana by La Fura dels Baus is successfully spreading around the world. Without going any further, this Sunday July 12th, it will give the starting signal to Ohrid Summer Festival de Macedonia. The opera, directed by Carlus Padrissa, will be performed in the famous Antique Theatre in the town of Ohrid at 21h.

The cantata, originally by German composer Carl Orff, was written between 1935 and 1936 from goliardic medieval texts that sing of spring, love and enjoyment of the senses. Although often performed in concert form, Carmina Burana is a work conceived for the scene, so the vision of Carlus Padrissa and La Fura dels Baus place it in its true artistic dimension.

This time the show will have music by the Macedonian Opera and Ballet and the Macedonian Philharmonics. More information on the official website of the festival.
