Watch in awe as Holst's beautiful and mystifying suite The Planets is performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra while a film created in collaboration with NASA and award-winning producer/director Duncan Copp is shown on a 24-foot screen above the stage.

The 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 The Planets.

This exciting multi-sensory event is preceded by outstanding pieces of classical music that are synonymous with outer space such as Strauss II’s Blue Danube Waltz featured in 2001: A Space Odyssey and John William’s Star Wars theme.
