Gonna party like it's 1199 


Several centuries before the Harvard Lampoon, there were the Goliards: young 12th- and 13th-century clergy who expressed their displeasure with the church's hypocrisies through Dada-esque poems and performances. (They were known to sing masses for costumed asses.) More than 1,000 of their poems and songs -- celebrating drunkenness, gluttony and the more pleasurable of the deadly sins -- were collected in the original CARMINA BURANA manuscript, now a ballet set to music by Carl Orff, a composer from the Nazi Germany era. The Atlanta Ballet performs the work OCT. 27-30. Call for times. $10-$76. Fox Theatre, 660 Peachtree St. 404-817-8700. www.atlantaballet.com.
