These medieval songs around the wheel of fortune have been staged and danced many a time to Carl Orff´s gripping music. The latest attempt is by Claude Brumachon for the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève and was filmed in December at the Festival de Danse in Cannes. In this version men who seem to have escaped Dante´s “Inferno” are submitted to the fickleness of fate as the wheel of fortune turns joy into bitterness and hope into grief.
