carmina burana

4 posts in this topic

Is anyone familiar with a performance by the Nederlands Dans Theater (or Royal Danish Ballet) to the music of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana?

I saw a TV performance many years ago. It was filmed in a monastery and outdoors. Absolutely gorgeous! I'm trying to find out if the video is available.

Were you ever able to locate a copy of this video? I also saw it 40 years ago and can still recall parts of it.

I believe there is a copy in the performing arts library at Lincoln Center, but it does not circulate. You must view it in the library.

I would love to have a copy to watch over and over. If anyone knows where a legal copy might be available, I'll bet a number of us would be interested.

Thanks--

Dennis
