Read more about the opera Carmina Burana

Carmina Burana has always been popular with choirs and with audiences.  It is only the critics who seem to get a bit sniffy.  For this Festival's opening concert it is preceded by a purely orchestral highlight, again not heard as often as might be expected - Respighi's Pines of Rome.

Of the soloists, the cruelly high-lying tenor part of the roasting swan is sung by Sunnyboy Dladla.  He made his first entry on the Opscot website when we saw him as Ramiro in Opera North's Cenerentola.  This reached Newcastle but no further, but he reached Edinburgh last year as Brighella in Ariadne auf Naxos.
