"[Carmina Burana is] a monumental work that never fails to thrill." -Seattle Gay News

PNB closes its season with two repertory works. Alexei Ratmansky's Concerto DSCH, an "endlessly suspenseful construction [with] passages of breathtaking dance brilliance" (New York Times) returns to the stage. In Kent Stowell's primal Carmina Burana, a grand-scale synthesis of dance, chorus, and orchestra, the famous cantata's poems materialize as the entire Company unites song and score in jubilant communal experience under Carmina's colossal golden wheel of fortune.
