The Cleveland Orchestra began its farewell to Miami for the season Thursday night with Carl Orff’s hugely popular Carmina Burana at the Arsht Center.

The performance of Orff’s setting of medieval texts about fate, springtime, food, gambling and love, was a mixed one. There was excellent work by the soloists and chorus, yet a strangely underpowered account of the famous “O Fortuna” chorus.
