‘O Fortuna’. Oh fate! With a rousing clash of cymbals, defrocked monks burst onstage to set the tone for this extraordinary ballet created by Tom Pazik. Somber, joyous, miraculous, it creates an odyssey from Adam and Eve to the Apocalypse revealing that as the Wheel of Fortune turns, so does the fate of humanity. Dance Alive National Ballet with the University of Florida Symphony Orchestra, UF Concert Choir, Gainesville Civic Chorus and guest singers bring this magnificent production to a fevand er pitch. Sacred and profane, erotic and profound, CARMINA BURANA is not to be missed!
