Carmina Burana

National Choir of Spain

We bid farewell to the summer and bring the Festival to a close with a really special activity suitable for all audiences. In this Benlliure Year, the architectural ensemble dedicated to Alfonso XII that the sculptor created in Madrid’s Retiro Park provides the perfect finishing touch for this year’s Veranos de la Villa festival.

Carmina Burana by Carl Orff (1895-1982), a veritable icon of Western music, will be performed with the voices and music of the National  Choir of Spain directed by Miguel Ángel García Cañamero, in a staging tailor-made to the venue. A vibrant mosaic of songs about love, joie de vivre and toasting, expressed with brilliant and archaic sonority in this arrangement for two pianos and percussion, which serves to bring this edition of the festival to a close and to celebrate with the audience a new summer that is coming to an end.  


In collaboration with Benlliure Year 2022
