What began as a risque cabaret act from creators Stephen Trask and John Cameron Mitchell, then morphed into a 1998 off-Broadway cult hit and 2001 film before finally hitting Broadway in 2014, is now - in a different era - a piece of Americana, safe enough

Why See San Francisco Symphony - Holst's The Planets?

Cosmic!

Hear Gustav Holst's magnificent Planets Suite in full in this out of this world recital from the San Francisco Symphony. One of the most enduring pieces in Western classical music, its stunning realization of astrological themes continue to resonate with audiences of all ages 100 years on from its creation.

Completed between 1914 and 1916, The Planets is by far the most popular of Holst's works (a fact that troubled him in later life). Based not around the Roman Gods as is easily assumed, each planet's character and sound comes from Astrology, an idea that fascinated Holst at the time. Each movement seeks to evoke the emotion and passion that each planet elicits in us.
