Carmina Burana, dance and music event

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 2, and 2 p.m. Saturday, May 3, in the Ted Paul Theatre

A large, extraordinary collection of medieval poetry came to light in 1803 at the southern Bavarian monastery of Benediktbeuern. This collection of 320 poems, known as Carmina Burana or “Songs of Benediktbeuern,”dates back to about AD 1230. The Carmina Burana collection owes its present popularity to the German composer Carl Orff (1895-1982), who wrote his famous opus of the same name in 1935-6 using 24 of the original texts. In this performance, the Minnesota State Mankato Departments of Theatre & Dance and Music come together to present the poems in song and dance on the Ted Paul Theatre stage.

Individual tickets for Carmina Burana are $12 regular, $10 for senior citizens, youth 16 and under and groups of 15 or more, $9 for current Minnesota State students.
