Ars Lyrica Houston – Forbidden Pleasures

Artistic Director Matthew Dirst previews Forbidden Pleasures, a program of flamboyant music written for the castrati, including works dating from the period when opera was banned in Rome! The concert will be the season-finale for the Grammy-nominated Ars Lyrica Houston.

St.John Flynn chats with Matthew Dirst, who illustrates the conversation with CD excerpts of music that will be featured on Forbidden Pleasures.
