Holst, The Planets: Chorégies d'Orange
About the EventClose
Hear Gustav Holst's otherworldly symphonic poem The Planets performed in the historic Roman Theater of Orange. Jesko Sirvend conducts the Orchestre National de France, with as yet unseen images from NASA projected in the background.
Gustav Holst composed the seven movements of The Planets during the First World War. Each movement expresses a vision of a planet in our solar system, while also refering to Classical mythology. Paired with the projected NASA photographs, the music takes the audience on a revelatory journey through space!
