The Orlando Ballet is marking a special milestone this year: the company is celebrating Robert Hill’s 10th anniversary as Artistic Director.

So the Ballet's main stage season kicks off this weekend in epic style, with a full-scale production of the perennially popular Carmina Burana.  The performance features live music provided by the chorus and orchestra of the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park.

The ballet is described as a feast for the senses, and Hill tells 90.7's Nicole Darden Creston that the inclusion of live music is no small part of that.

More information on this weekend's performances of Carmina Burana is available on the Orlando Ballet website.

Nicole came to Central Florida to attend Rollins College and started working for Orlando’s ABC News Radio affiliate shortly after graduation. She joined Central Florida Public Media in 2010. As a field reporter, news anchor and radio show host in the City Beautiful, she has covered everything from local arts to national elections, from extraordinary hurricanes to historic space flights, from the people and procedures of Florida’s justice system to the changing face of the state’s economy.
