For its first production this year, Atlanta Ballet is bringing back famous British choreographer David Bintley’s “Carmina Burana” to the stage next month at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
Latin for “Songs for Beuern,” “Carmina Burana” is the name of a collection of satirical, irreverent poems and dramatic texts from the 11th and 12th centuries. Set to Carl Orff’s acclaimed score, this modern interpretation of “Carmina Burana” follows the story of three young seminarians as they question their faith and explore worldly pleasures, including lust, greed and gluttony.
The ballet runs for six performances, Feb. 3-11. Purchase tickets.
