About the performance

Who knew science could sound so beautiful?

One of the world’s pre-eminent physicists, Professor Brian Cox, takes to the stage for the first time with the MSO in this special event. Journey through space and time as Professor Cox takes you through the human struggle against our finite existence in an infinite universe.

Joining them on stage will be conductor Daniel Harding, to lead the Orchestra through some of classical music’s most universal repertoire.
