In this unprecedented multimedia event, the Houston Symphony will perform a back-to-back lineup of the first two installments in the HD Odyssey film series – The Planets and The Earth (formerly Orbit). See striking images in The Earth, shown on a giant screen above the orchestra, taken from NASA’s missions to Earth’s orbit, and accompanied by Strauss’ epic tone poem Also sprach Zarathustra. Then, watch in awe as images of NASA’s exploration of the solar system are brought to life in vivid form with the orchestra’s performance of Holst’s The Planets.
