Arguably the most iconic choral work of the 20th century, Carmina Burana’s unforgettable opening, “O Fortuna,” has become a pop culture phenomenon. Based on medieval German poetry, Orff's Carmina Burana has it all: rhythmic and brooding choruses, lusty drinking songs, ballads cursing fickle lovers and gleaming paeans to love.

Catulli Carmina brings all of the boldness and audacious storytelling its more famous sibling piece is know for to complete a program that will thrill and delight. Many may not have heard the Catulli Carmina, one of the two sequels Orff wrote to Carmina Burana, but, in a rare pairing, audiences will get to hear them both together as Orff intended with four critically acclaimed soloists, the Dallas Symphony Chorus, the Dallas Symphony Children’s Chorus, and the DSO.
