2001 - A Space Odyssey set to a live score

Following a sell-out success in June 2010, Southbank Centre presents Stanley Kubrick's seminal film 2001 - A Space Odyssey with a live score.
Conducted by André de Ridder, the enormous forces of Philharmonia Orchestra and Philharmonia Voices join together to perform the film's extraordinary soundtrack, as a live accompaniment to a screening in Royal Festival Hall.
Long recognised as one of the greatest science fiction films of all time, celebrated for its technological realism, its innovative Oscar-winning special effects and a bold use of music. The film brought worldwide fame to both Richard Strauss and Sprach Zarathustra and the music of Gyorgy Ligeti; it also created one of cinema's most memorable images as a spaceship floats serenely through space to the strains of Johann Strauss' Blue Danube Waltz.
