ABOUT THIS CONCERT

This is what ‘epic’ sounds like. A massive orchestra and huge chorus join forces in Jones Hall for Orff’s infamous ode to love, drink, and living life to the fullest, Carmina burana. Instantly recognizable thanks to its use in countless movies and commercials, a live Carmina is one of classical music’s most spellbinding and immersive experiences. Conductor Laureate Andrés Orozco-Estrada returns to lead these performances, which also include an exciting world premiere by Jimmy López Bellido.

RUN TIME: 2 hours, 10 minutes

Encore After Party:
