This is in two sections, the first part is not to the music of Carl Orf. Dancing is excellent, choreography staggered. Carmina Burana is a beautiful piece of music, time went too fast.

Description

Carmina Burana

This audience favorite is a theatrical piece based on poems discovered in the library of an ancient Bavarian monastery.  The thirteenth century poems and songs composed by minstrels and monks who had freed themselves of monastic discipline were set to music by Carl Orff.  The ballet is not a retelling of the poems, but rather an abstract depiction.
