Why See Houston Symphony - Carmina Burana?
Raise the roof
O'Fortuna! Don't miss the Houston Symphony as they fill Jones Hall with Carl Orff's blockbuster cantata. One of the most vibrant, hair-raising sonic experiences in all of the classical canon, this medieval inspired masterpiece is a guaranteed showstopper that will move Symphony audiences old and young.
An adaptation of a group of 13th Century poems, none of Carmina Burana's movements are more well known than it's first. Dramatic, powerful and indulgent, it has permeated popular culture, having been featured in everything from advertisements to movies, rock music to sports games.
The evening will also feature a recital of d'Albert's Cello Concerto, led by principal cellist Brinton Averil Smith.
Opening night: 29 March 2019
