Gaze in wonder as NASA images and films are projected onto a 24-foot screen as the world-famous Royal Philharmonic Orchestra perform Holst’s awe-inspiring suite, The Planets.

This exciting multimedia event features the latest astounding high-definition photos and moving images from NASA, using material sent back by The Voyager, Mars Rover and other space missions. Brought to life in vivid form with the orchestra’s performance of Holst’s dramatic The Planets.

This exciting multi-sensory event is preceded by outstanding pieces of classical music including Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra (featured in 2001: A Space Odyssey) which is synonymous with outer space and Adams’ Short Ride in a Fast Machine which is one of the BBC’s ‘Ten Pieces’ aiming to introduce classical music to children.
