A LIVE PRESENTATION OF 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY
Performed by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra
In a Queensland first, the 2017 World Science Festival Brisbane will screen Stanley Kubrick’s seminal masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey with the ground-breaking score performed live by Queensland Symphony Orchestra with the Australian Voices choir.
A beautiful blend of science and art, known for its technological realism and creative audacity, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a futuristic exploration of existentialism, human evolution, technology, artificial intelligence and extraterrestrial life.
The first and last 20 minutes of the film are dialogue free and the inventive use of classical music includes the Gayane Ballet Suite, lso sprach Zarathustra and, most memorably, the ultimate space waltz of The Blue Danube.
Under the baton of internationally-renowned conductor Marc Taddei, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and Australian Voices choir will bring yet another dimension to this revered cult classic in a live orchestral and choral performance of Kubrick’s final score delivered in the rich quality of surround sound.
DON’T MISS THIS RARE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE THIS CINEMATIC MASTERPIECE LIKE YOU’VE NEVER HEARD BEFORE.
