The Contemporary Ballet of Teatro San Martín, directed by the renown choreographer Mauricio Wainrot, former choreographer of the Royal Ballet of Flanders (Belgium), and Les Ballets Jazz (Montreal), will offer a series of free presentations of their choreographic version of the scenic cantata Carmina Burana at the Amphitheater Eva Peron in Parque Centenario.
Carmina Burana is a collection of chants from the 12th and 13th centuries, preserved in a unique Codex found in 1803 by Johann Christoph von Aretin at the abbey of Bura Sancti Benedicti (Benediktbeuern), in Bavaria. The codex comprises a total of 300 rhymes, written mainly in latin, some in an ancient German dialect, and ancient French.
Between 1935 and 1936 German composer Carl Orff set 24 of the poems to music, also called Carmina Burana, becoming a symbol of the German spirit. The most famous movement is "Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi (O Fortuna)".
The scenes that will be presented in this occasion are: Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi, Primo Vere, In Taberna Cour D’Amours, Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi.

Dates: Saturdays 19 and 26, Sundays 20 and 27 of February, 2011. 9:00 pm
Location:  Amphitheater Eva Peron, Av. Leopoldo Marechal y Lillo, Parque Centenario
FREE ENTRANCE. Free tickets can be picked up from 7:00 pm

  1. This looks like a great event. As for picking up the free tickets: would we go directly to Parque Centenario to pick up them up? Or is there some other ticket office off-site that we should go to?

  2. Henry, the free tickets can only be picked up at the Amphitheater itself, they start giving them up two hours before the presentation.
