World Science Festival Brisbane says
World Science Festival Brisbane and QPAC in association with Warner Bros., Southbank Centre London and the British Film Institute present 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.

Released almost 50 years ago, Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, which he co-wrote with prolific science fiction author and futurist Arthur C. Clarke, is one of the most influential works in cinema history and consistently ranks among the top ten films of all time.

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 extra-terrestrial life.

Nominated for four Academy Awards, and winning for visual effects, its ground-breaking soundtrack is among its many distinctive features. 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 will bring yet another dimension to this revered cult classic with a live 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.
