Australian Premiere
The Sydney Symphony and Sydney Philharmonia Choirs
Conductor André de Ridder 

2001: A Space Odyssey is arguably the most perfect marriage of visuals and sound in cinema history, and recently made it into Sight & Sound’s top ten Greatest Films of All Time. Experience Stanley Kubrick’s ground-breaking masterpiece with the dramatic power of a live soundtrack from the Sydney Symphony and Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, and be transported on an unforgettable journey to the infinite beyond.

The conjunction of music with image is stunning: a black monolith and the swirling, disembodied voices of Ligeti’s Requiem; the ominous fanfare to Richard Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra signalling evolution; and the graceful descent of spacecraft, waltzing through  the inky darkness to Johann Strauss’ The Blue Danube

Operatic in scope, 2001: A Space Odyssey demands to be seen on the big screen, complete with spectacular live music conducted by the internationally renowned André De Ridder.
