Before the month slips away and we’re on to holiday entertainment, here’s a reminder to catch one of the year’s most riveting events. Carmina Burana is a spectacular piece featuring not only Tulsa Ballet’s awesome dancers but Tulsa Opera and Tulsa Oratorio Chorus singers and, of course, musicians from Tulsa Symphony. The music was composed by Carl Orff and based on medieval poetry written by Benedictine monks. Tulsa Ballet’s Ma Cong created it in 2006.
