If you have a planetarium, mobile or otherwise, you can download and use the show for free!
The show has two parts, one focused on Holst’s seven-part orchestral suite The Planets, which premiered in 1918, the other featuring a modern reinterpretation. Both make full use of modern astronomical imagery and spectacular graphics. The show is modular, so venues can pick out segments to suit different audiences.
