Program

The season starts with a bang! Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is an epic fight back against the powers of fate that has become the inspirational soundtrack for everything from Tampa Bay Buccaneers games to TV shows and movies such as The Hunt for Red October. Featuring The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, the musical drama explores the forces of humanity – from young love to drunken monks. The evening starts with something far lovelier, Daphnis et Chloe, Suites 1 & 2, which will be performed with the rarely heard wordless choir.

¡La temporada comienza con fuerza! Carmina Burana de Carl Orff es una lucha épica contra los poderes del destino que se ha convertido en la banda sonora inspiradora de todo, desde los juegos de los Tampa Bay Buccaneers hasta programas de televisión y películas como The Hunt for Red October. Con The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, el drama musical explora las fuerzas de la humanidad, desde el amor joven hasta los monjes borrachos. La velada comienza con algo mucho más encantador, Daphnis et Chloe, Suites 1 y 2, que se interpretará con el coro sin palabras que rara vez se escucha.
