A powerful screen and sound concert event

Experience a spectacle of sight and sound this January when the MSO performs the acclaimed score to Stanley Kubrick's 1968 groundbreaking masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Presented at the Plenary, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Wharf on Saturday 25th January 2020 at 7:00 pm.

Conducted by Benjamin Northey and featuring the MSO Chorus, this powerful screen and sound concert event will showcase the film's bold use of classical concert music.

The film brought worldwide acclaim to classical music through cinema, with a soundtrack featuring Richard Strauss' tone poem Also Sprach Zarathustra, the ballet Gayane by Aram Khachaturian; and Ligeti's contemporary works Requiem Lux Aeterna, Aventures, and Atmosphėres. 2001: A Space Odyssey is best remembered for one of the most remarkable scenes in cinema, of a spaceship floating serenely through space to Johann Strauss' waltz The Blue Danube.

2001: A Space Odyssey was co-written by Stanley Kubrick and science-fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke. The novel and film were released simultaneously in 1968, sparking our curiosity to learn more about the greater universe.

Presented in association with Warner Bros., Southbank Centre London and the British Film Institute.

One performance only. Tickets are now on sale at
