Carl Orff’s outrageous choral-orchestral classic is an awe-inspiring showpiece about fate, fortune, and all that’s lusty and luscious in life. Based on the salacious writings of medieval monks, the spectacle begins with the earth-shaking “O Fortuna!” and continues through more than 60 minutes of larger-than-life music.
