About this performance

In 1982, the Australian cinema landscape changed forever when The Man from Snowy River captured the hearts of the nation and the world.

Now, after four sold out performances the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra returns to perform the award-winning score by Bruce Rowland live to screen, under the baton of Vanessa Scammell. The film’s stars, Sigrid Thornton and Tom Burlinson, will also return to the MSO stage for a special guest appearance at these performances.

Inspired by the Banjo Patterson poem, The Man from Snowy River tells the exhilarating tale of Jim Craig, an 18-year-old who, after losing his father, must prove himself in the harsh high country and win the respect of the rugged mountain men. Along the way, he discovers love, adventure and a secret hidden in the hills more precious than any treasure.

Honouring Victoria as the film’s spiritual homeland, experience this unique opportunity at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and revisit the beloved Australian classic on the big screen with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

Presented in association with Spiritworks and Theatre Tours International.

Duration: approx. 2.5 hours including interval
