    EXSTATICA - Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

    Ecstasy: exalted pleasure so intense rational thought and self-control gets lost – physically, sexually, spiritually. The BBC Concert Orchestra runs the gamut from torment to joy. Marie Angel soprano Kate Winter vocals BBC Concert Orchestra Keith Lockhart conductor Christopher Cook presenter As part of a diverse evening of performances, Michael Nyman’s lustful songs I Sonetti Lussuriosi are set to the pornographic poems of Pietro Aretino. Despite being in Italian their sexually explicit lyrics ensured the CD release wore the ‘Parental Advisory’ sticker more associated with gangsta rap. When a translation was commissioned for the premiere in 2008, it proved too much for management who banned the sale of the concert programme on the grounds of obscenity. This event contains explicit material and is suitable for audiences aged 16+
