About this Performance
As Warner Bros. celebrates 100 years of entertaining audiences around the world, the Hollywood Bowl will add a highlight to the yearlong celebration through Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi epic 2001: A Space Odyssey. A landmark film in the 1960s, it has topped many critics’ lists for greatest film of all time. A key ingredient in Kubrick’s cinematic alchemy was his clever use of classical music, which forever changed and gave new meaning set against stunning celestial imagery. From the ethereal music of György Ligeti to Richard Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra and Johann Strauss, Jr.’s The Blue Danube, watch and listen as the Los Angeles Philharmonic performs the score live to picture while the movie shows on the Bowl’s big screens.
