£6 tickets for BBC CONCERT ORCHESTRA’s EXSTATICA

The BBC Concert Orchestra runs the gamut from torment to joy with Exstatica on Monday 19 November at Queen Elizabeth Hall.

The programme features the maxed-out minimalism of  composer Michael Torke‘s ‘Ecstatic Orange’ and Arnold Schoenberg‘s ‘Transfigured Night’, inspired by Richard Dehmel’s poem where star-crossed lovers experience a moment of incandescent bliss.

Soprano Marie Angel joins the BBC Concert Orchestra to perform Michael Nyman‘s lustful songs ‘I Sonetti Lussuriosi’, which 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.

Physical and intellectual ecstasy are all wrapped up in a special version of the Pet Shop Boys’ classic dance hit ‘I Wouldn’t Normally Do This Kind Of Thing’, where Neil Tennant expressed the immortal desire to ‘take all my clothes off and dance to the Rite of Spring.’

This event contains sexually explicit material and is suitable for audiences aged 18+
