The reinterpretation of Carmina Burana by La Fura dels Baus continues it’s tour and arrives in Taiwan. Carl Orff‘s opera, directed by Carlus Padrissa, will be installed in the National Taichung Theater of Taichung, in two functions on the 20th and 21th of November.
La Fura dels Baus has designed an exciting Carmina Burana, where the viewer, through shocking scenes, special effects and even spring fragrances, plunges into the strong and visceral music of Carl Orff, performed live by the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra.
A cylinder of ten meters in diameter surrounds the orchestra on stage while some images, projected on it, illustrate the work. A giant moon, defrosting, waterfalls, floral ecstasy, a live harvest, wine, water and fire.
About 100,000 spectators have enjoyed this show by La Fura dels Baus, a company that, over its 30 year history, has developed it’s own language, style and aesthetics.
