The Odesa National Academic Opera and Ballet Theater of Ukraine is heading to the Netherlands this April for a new performance set to the world-famous Carmina Burana, the legendary score of Carl Orff.
This performance marks the anniversary of the brutal Russian invasion of Ukraine and sees more than 130 musicians, dancers and singers perform a new, interdisciplinary performance of Carmina Burana for the first time in the Netherlands.
With the exceptional vocal soloists, choir, dance and orchestral line-up, plus the direction, choreography and scenography of the Dutchman Gerard Mosterd, this new performance creates an intense experience for audiences.
Due to the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, this acclaimed company has found itself in dire straits. Odesa has been a target for the Russians since the outbreak of the full-scale war in February 2022 and it is exceptional that this ensemble is able to tour the Netherlands, despite the war.
Carmina Burana goes on tour from 9 to 16 April 2023 – find more information, dates and venues here.
