In  an  age  of  individualism and  social media, Romania’s  Edward Clug revisits  a fundamentally humanizing 20th century work with the power to bring people together, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, inspired by medieval verse. The work’s introduction, O Fortuna, evokes the World's destiny while Man is powerless in facing its uncertain future:


We have the impression of racing to our downfall without being able to change anything, and yet, not only are we capable of changing our destiny, we must, together. It is this intrinsic strength I am seeking to demonstrate in opening the season with the grand-scale, spectacular Carmina Burana."
Ivan Cavallari


The artistic director of Les Grands Ballets decided to call once more on gifted choreographer Edward Clug – firmly anchored in modernity – in order to reflect, first, the implicit torment of Carmina Burana, but more importantly springtime, hope and love, central themes in the work, which touches human beings in their most visceral dimension, that of their legacy, and longevity.
