(Postponed) Carmina Burana, originally scheduled March 14 & 15, will be performed in the Des Moines Civic Center on September 19 & 20, 2020. No action is required from Carmina Burana ticketholders; all previously issued tickets will be valid for the rescheduled performance dates.
Spellbinding, hypnotic and heart-pounding, Carmina Burana simply must be experienced live. Hear this choral masterwork like never before as the Des Moines Symphony is joined onstage by 200 voices for a sensational, spectacular performance long to be remembered. Beethoven’s ebullient Eighth Symphony ticks along merrily to open the concert, while Wagner’s musical love letter, the tender and intimate Siegfried Idyll, contrasts the more provocative Carmina with its gentle, lilting portrayal of love.
