In the heart of Hamburg: a warm late summer night, lively hustle and bustle, conviviality and brilliant sounds in the open air - chief conductor Kent Nagano, the Philharmonic State Orchestra and the Hamburg State Opera have a special gift for their loyal audience again this year. With powerful choirs, stirring rhythms and beautiful melodies: With Carl Orff's cantata “Carmina Burana”, the orchestra, together with the choir of the Hamburg State Opera and the Hamburger Knabenchor, brings one of the most popular musical creations ever to the Rathausmarkt. “O Fortuna, your moods change like the image of the moon,” is how the opening chorus first addresses the goddess of fate, before going through the different stages of human life in several stages. The wheel of fate rolls relentlessly between joy and sorrow, love and consolation, tells of the autumn of one's own existence and yet gives the decisive hope: that a new spring will come - O, Fortuna!

Venue: Rathausmarkt, 20095 Hamburg
