Details of Carmina Burana and the Ticket Luck value
The term, Carmina Burana, in reality means a manuscript containing some 254 dramatic texts and poems, written mostly in the 11th, 12th, and the 13th century, by various members of the clergy and students of theology. Mainly written in Latin, since Latin was the lingua franca of Western Europe, some poems and other literature has also been found written in old French and Middle High German. The most important fact of this manuscript however remains that it satirizes the Catholic Church. The fact that Carmina Burana was written by theologians against their own Church and its teachings speak volumes about the nature of human free-spirit and the tendency to rebel against the established norms of the time.In addition to various writings by students of theology, it further preserves the works of the likes of Walter of Chatillon, Peter of Blois, and various other unknown poets. One wonders however that if these “rebels” were writing this in hiding, what was it that they were trying to hide! One cursory glance at the themes of this 254 poems manuscript and it becomes abundantly clear that they had good reason to write in secret. The themes are based on gaming and drinking; love (more in the context of physical love; sex), and songs mocking the established moral code of the society. For example, in one of the poems, a world was imagined wherein it was incumbent upon priests to gamble, eat heartily and drink strong wine, and having physical relations with opposite sex. One could only imagine, the fate of these “rebels” had their literature been found at the time by the Church!
Carmina Burana was however ultimately discovered centuries later in 1803 in a monastery in Bavaria, Germany, and the original manuscript could still be found inside the Bavarian State Library in Munich. Ever since Orff has composed 24 poems of the manuscript into a musical in 1935-1936, Carmina Burana tickets have been selling like hot cakes since! Interestingly enough, Orff, a great German composer, himself was Bavarian, and born in Munich. The 24 poems that he finally selected out of 254 were those which represented the very mood of the “rebel” theologians. These poems reflect the pleasures of a sinful life of lust, gambling, gluttony, and drinking. They also reflect on the joys associated with spring season, the ephemeral nature of life, and the fickleness of wealth and fortune.
Its premier before the audience at the Alte Oper, the most famous opera house in Frankfurt, went very well. It went viral soon afterwards, and performed all over Germany. Its popularity could not be suppressed even by the repressive Nazi regime and after the War; it remained as famous as ever. Matter of fact, post-1945, it became part of the international classic repertoire. This one of a kind classic is soon to be produced in your city and a must attend event for those who consider themselves to be true lovers and appreciators of classics and classical music.
Carmina Burana is one of those pieces of ancient literature which to date are as relevant as they were when initially written. A true reflection of human spirit and mind, it is amazing to realize how much we as a society have not changed since the 11th century. This alone makes us connect with our ancestors as if time between us never was! For a true and enchanted journey of ancient Western Europe, you have got to buy Carmina Burana tickets today!
