25jan7:00 pm9:00 pm2001: A Space Odyssey in Concert with the MSO


Event Details

The original score will be recreated under the guidance of MSO conductor Benjamin Northey. The full orchestra will be accompanied by the MSO Chorus, who will perform pieces from the original classical soundtrack, like ‘On the Beautiful Blue Danube’ by Johann Strauss, ‘Atmosphères’ by György Ligeti and ‘Also Sprach Zarathustra’ by Richard Strauss.

Granted, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a little dated, but it remains as intelligent and provocative as ever, kick-starting years of conceptual dreaming. Plus, as Time Out London put it, Douglas Rain’s clammy voice work as Hal 9000, the murderous machine, “remains one of Kubrick’s snazziest pieces of direction”.

The MSO’s 2001: A Space Odyssey in Concert will be performed at the Plenary at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday, January 25 at 7pm.
