Felix Mendelssohn Die erste Walpurgisnacht, Op. 60
Carl Orff Carmina Burana

The 2019 edition of the Victoria International Arts Festival will see the MPO joined by two choirs and talented soloists from Malta and beyond for an epic concert featuring two great German cantatas.

Mendelssohn’s Die erste Walpurgisnacht is a musical setting of a poem by Goethe telling of Druids attempting to continue practicing their traditions in the face of growing oppression from Christian rulers.

Orff’s Carmina Burana is based on 24 poems sourced from the eponymous mediaeval collection, discovered in a
Benedictine monastery in Bavaria in 1803. Most poems are in Latin, but some are in old German and French dialects.
