    Insistently earthy. Bold and barbaric. A lusty, rowdy masterpiece. Everyone has something to say about Carmina – from the subject matter (wine, women, gambling, wealth and that fickle thing called fate) to its original authors (medieval minstrels, vagabond scholars and defrocked monks)! The renowned Boston Camerata takes you on a rare trip back to medieval times to hear selections of this magical music in period style. Then, we’ll present Orff’s extravagant orchestral masterpiece, known for its raw, sensual energy and hypnotic rhythms. Three soloists, two choruses and an enormous orchestra combine forces for an unabashed and unrelenting celebration of life. Passion, drama, innocence, excess – and even a bit of sin. Carmina Burana isn’t something you hear. It’s something you feel.
