What’s more exciting than the portrayal of love and lust, desire and longing, combined with raucous and bawdy good fun? Watching it all spill from the stage in this sizzling collaboration, featuring a dynamic mix of MDT dancers, acclaimed vocalists, chorale members and musicians. Set to the stirring and powerful music of composer Carl Orff, Carmina Burana is a sensuous and gritty romp based on poems written by 13th century vagabond poets.

Original choreography by MDT founder Loyce Houlton under the direction of Lise Houlton.
