Gaze in wonder as breath-taking NASA images and footage are projected onto a giant screen, complementing Holst’s awe-inspiring suite, The Planets, which was inspired by the contrasting astrological qualities of the solar system and features the much-loved movements, Mars and Jupiter.

Hear other well-known themes synonymous with outer space, including Star Wars®, Also Sprach Zarathustra (featured in 2001: A Space Odyssey) and Beethoven’s Symphony No.7, Allegretto (featured in Disney’s© Fantasia). A truly multi-sensory event.
