Watch in awe as Holst’s beautiful and mystical suite The Planets is performed by the RSNO while a film – created in collaboration with NASA and award-winning producer/director Duncan Copp – is shown on the big screen. This multimedia event features the latest high-definition planetary images from NASA’s exploration of the solar system, brought to life in vivid form with the Orchestra’s performance of Holst’s The Planets and is preceded by outstanding classics synonymous with outer space, including Johann Strauss II’s Blue Danube Waltz (featured in 2001: A Space Odyssey) and John Williams’ iconic Star Wars theme.
