About the Performance

Carmina Burana
Choreographed by David Hochoy
October 20 – 23, 2022
OneAmerica Mainstage

CAPTIVATING. TIMELESS. EPIC.

One of Hochoy’s signature works, Carmina Burana is timeless. The music, composed by Carl Orff in 1936, remains one of the most popular pieces of classical music repertoire.  When combined with David Hochoy's dance interpretation that premiered in 1995...you'll understand why this spectacle is a perennial favorite! With a new cast of dancers, you’ll be captivated by their passion, the costumes, lighting and Fantasia-like storytelling.

APPROXIMATE RUN TIME: 1 hour and 30 minutes, including an intermission.

We wish to acknowledge that sensitivity to subject matter varies from person to person. The production of Carmina Burana includes a brief depiction of violence.

THE MOST FITTING GRAND FINALE

David Hochoy’s "Scheherazade" is inspired by “A Thousand and One Nights'' and embodies the magic of storytelling and the imagination as stories shift from the abstract to narrative. The stunning costumes and lighting make the full cast of dancers come alive as Scheherazade, a princess, a prince on horseback, a witch and her minions.  The rigorous and pulsing grande finale showcases the stamina and pinpoint coordination of dancers always at their peak. This is one of those Dance Kaleidoscopes’ performances that make you leap to your feet!

This work premiered in Indianapolis in 1995, and it’s fitting that this is the last work of the 2022-23 Legacy Season.

APPROXIMATE RUN TIME: 2 hours including an intermission.
