The most popular work of the 20th Century, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is a powerful pagan musical offering that celebrates nature, fortune, love, lust, and drinking.

Based on a collection of medieval texts, it is an epic work for mass choir, orchestra, and soloists. From its opening chorus O Fortuna, the raw, bold power of the music captivates and exalts, making it one of the most iconic scores in popular culture. Starring Samuel Dale Johnson, Desiree Frahn and Paul McMahon, with the full State Opera Chorus, Young Adelaide Voices, and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Benjamin Northey. This choral spectacular will be a night to remember.

Following a sell-out performance of Carmen in the Square in 2019, State Opera presents Carmina Burana at Memorial Drive Park for one extraordinary night.

Platinum ticket and hospitality packages are now available.

This performance was originally scheduled for Saturday 28 March, The performance will now take place one day earlier on Friday 27 March at 7.30pm. For More information about the date change, please click here.

Angus Wood returns to his role of Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly after performing the same role for New Zealand Opera in 2015

“…The standout performance of the evening is Angus Wood as Pinkerton. He portrays Pinkerton as charismatic but entitled, out to get the best of what he can. From his first entrance he holds the stage and his vocal performance is rich, strong, and exhilarating. Wood gives us a performance that allows us to understand why Butterfly falls so deeply in love with him.” - Theatrereview.org.nz
