No, I love it too. But I also love a good deal of Orff that most people don't even know. 
(WEll, no one really knows anything more than Carmina Burana lol.) And the 2 "sequels" to 
Carmina Burana (Catulli Carmina and Il Trionfo Di Afrodite) are fascinating pieces that 
deserve to be heard more often. 

Orff's Der Mond is also a very fun opera, and frankly would make a wonderful children's 
opera (as I think it was intended to be). Though it's a complex piece (despite a number of 
very hummable tunes), it really wouldn't be that challenging to produce, compared to many 
standard operas. Yet I never hear that it's being done anywhere. Too bad. (Not that I'd 
expect the Met to do a piece like that, but it would be perfect for a small company looking 
for a family-oriented piece...)
