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.

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.

Very droll. Carmina Buranda plays tennis. I've never been to the stadium and the online booking form provides little infor about access. Bass is open only when I am at work. I suspect that unlike a concert hall the easiest access for my lame guest is from the front not the back?

“…Whilst the tenor has only one song (The Ballad of the Roasting Swan), when in the right hands, it can be a vocal tour de force with its plaintive falsetto. And Paul McMahon was truly masterful, delivering with precision and power…” - @limelightmagazine
