ONLY A VERY FEW SEATS LEFT. Carmina Burana is my choice for the most exciting presentation this season for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Orff called hiw work “Cantiones profanae, cantoribus et choris cantandae, comitantibus instrumentis atque imaginibus magicis,” or “Secular songs for singers and choruses accompanied by instruments and magical images.
Semiramis – William Wetmore Story – Dallas Museum Art This beautiful carving of Semiramis is found at the main entrance to the DMA. Its intricate work is reflective of Story’s attention to detail – though he did have a large workshop filled with assistant stone cutters. While you are drawn to the beauty and majesty of the piece upon closer inspection you find a face of stone – the cold hard face of Semiramis, Assyrian Queen for whom the Hanging Gardens of Babylon were built.
