On Friday, July 20, Saturday, July 21, and on Sunday, July 22, 2007 (a special matinee performance), the songs of “Carmina burana,” based on 24 medieval poems and tales, will be performed. The work takes you on a journey through the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the fleeting nature of life, the joy of the return of spring, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling and lust. Opening this performance is violinist William Preucil, bringing to life Stephen Paulus’s gorgeous, moving, and uniquely American violin concerto — the work itself is dedicated to Preucil. Tickets are available on line or by calling (307) 733-1128.
