The famous cry to the Empress of the World – “O, Fortuna!” – resoundingly opens this year’s 65th edition of the Ljubljana Festival, which for its inaugural evening presents the magnificent staged cantata for symphony orchestra, choir and soloists, Carmina Burana, in a remarkable reinterpretation by the famed Barcelona theatrical group La Fura dels Baus and featuring a huge cast of singers and musicians from all over Slovenia. La Fura dels Baus has designed an exciting Carmina Burana, where through shocking scenes, special effects and even spring fragrances, the viewer is plunged into the strong and visceral music of Carl Orff. A cylinder ten metres in diameter surrounds the orchestra on stage while images, projected on it, illustrate the work. A giant moon, waterfalls, floral ecstasy, a live harvest, wine, water and fire. More than 100,000 spectators have enjoyed this show by La Fura dels Baus all around the world. The reinterpretation of Carmina Burana by La Fura dels Baus continues its tour to Ljubljana.
