Program notes

Tune in for an epic choral evening brought to you by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra with maestro Fabio Luisi, four all-star soloists, and two choruses—a lineup fit for Carl Orff’s iconic Carmina Burana, whose “O Fortuna” opening may be the most-heard choral motif in pop culture today. Adapted from a collection of German medieval poetry, Carmina Burana boasts rhythmic and brooding choruses, lusty drinking songs, ballads cursing fickle lovers, and gleaming paeans to love.

And there’s more: If you have never heard Catulli Carmina, one of the two suites Orff wrote to follow Carmina Burana, take advantage of this rare opportunity to experience them together as Orff intended! Featured alongside the DSO, Dallas Symphony Chorus, and Dallas Symphony Children’s Chorus are tenor Herbert Lippert, soprano Audrey Luna, countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, and baritone Sean Michael Plumb.
