50 years ago this July, the world looked on as dreams became reality and a man walked on the Moon. Anything was possible; there were no limits to what humankind could achieve.
New music show In The Steps of Apollo charts our relationship with the Moon and explores the legacy of the lunar landing in five musical journeys. Each journey features specially commissioned contemporary classical works by leading composers in glorious surround sound, accompanied by stunning astronomical visuals across the Planetarium dome.
From the observations of ancient stargazers, through to the daring of the 1969 mission and on to the countless destinations yet to be discovered, the 3D show takes the audience on a flight through the solar system and beyond. Each journey is prefaced with an introduction from the Planetarium presenter, providing scientific background to the visuals.
The show has been created by music and education charity Sound World and the Planetarium team at We The Curious, and is supported by Arts Council England, Ambache Charitable Trust, Foyle Foundation.
