Aurora Orchestra explores celestial sounds and the cosmic order in an eclectic programme enriched by choreography and illustration.
For the Greek philosophers and their later admirers in the Renaissance, music was of profound importance, woven into the fabric of the cosmos as elemental sounds produced by the stars and planets themselves. This enduring concept of the ‘music of the spheres’ provides the starting point for what promises to be one of Aurora Orchestra’s most visually spectacular Orchestral Theatre adventures, with elements of design, lighting, projection and illustration placing the orchestra inside these ancient visions of our solar system.
