Cincinnati Ballet
Nov. 4-6
Springer Auditorium Music Hall [Over-the-Rhine]

Carmina Burana is the perfect union of music and dance. One of the best known works of the 20th century, the opening of Carl Orff’s secular cantata is recognizable to almost all who hear it. This Season, Cincinnati Ballet artists will perform Nicolo Fonte’s bold choreography, accompanied by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the May Festival Chorus, celebrating its 150th Anniversary Season in 2023. Carmina Burana is based upon a rediscovered collection of poetry dating back to the 11th century. Orff set 24 of the poems to music in 1936.

Part art installation and part movement drama, Alejandro Cerrudo’s Extremely Close creates a sense of restlessness as dancers negotiate their way through a perpetually shifting environment. Propelled by changing landscapes, Cerrudo weaves a mesmerizing spell of movement punctuated by fleeting moments of intense intimacy with music by composers Philip Glass and Dustin O’Halloran.
