Be carried away by the thrilling collaboration of music and motion!
The iconic adaptation of Carl Orff’s beloved cantata by National Artist for Dance, Alice Reyes, returns with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Philippine Madrigal Singers with soprano Lara Maigue.
Performances run from June 14-15 at the Samsung Performing Arts Theater.
Alice Reyes’ CARMINA BURANA is one of the company’s most iconic pieces. Inspired by the goliardic verses set to Carl Orff’s majestic score, Reyes tells the story of a community experiencing the joys of life, drinking, and love, through exuberant, erotic, and pagan movements.
This new restaging will feature live music by the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philippine Madrigal Singers and guest soloist Lara Maigue.
Mesmerizing sets and costumes are by the late National Artist for Theater Design Salvador Bernal.
