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.

Music: Carl Orff

Choreography: Elizabeth Wistrich

Year Choreographed: 1984

Costume Design: David Heuvel

Sets: Stephen Judson

Lighting Design: Stephen Judson

Music: Leon Minkus

Choreography: Marius Petipa

Year Choreographed: 1877

Lighting Design: Stephen Judson
