Fisher Auditorium, IUP Performing Arts Center

This event is over.

Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, performed by IUP Dance Theater and IUP Music Department musicians, is sure to bring to life visual and exciting new interpretation of the monumental and grand masterpiece.

This production promises to tell an original story through the choreography and direction of Holly Boda-Sutton and the choral direction of Ryan Beeken, with Michael Kingan directing the IUP Percussion Ensemble. The students groups will be joined by several piano and vocal soloists.

Carmina Burana is probably the most frequently performed choral work of the 21st century. The name “Carmina Burana” translates as “Songs of Beuren” and refers to a collection of early 13th-century songs and poems that were discovered in Beuren in 1803.
