Hollywood in Vienna invites to an unforgettable musical journey through space and time and honours the Hollywood composer, Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner Alexandre Desplat. First, A Space Odyssey leads us to outer space. We enter the infamous, global Star Wars and are rescued by Star Trek’s spaceship “Enterprise” before Gravity pulls us back to earth and, finally, we fulfill E.T.’s wish, to phone home. In the second part, Desplat’s atmospheric melodies for Harry Potter, Twilight, The King’s Speech and The Grand Budapest Hotel let us virtually float through the universe. Featuring star singers from various musical genres – Verdi soprano Kristin Lewis, singer-songwriter Katerine Ellis and pop star Grace Capristo – “standing ovations were pre-programmed” (Kronenzeitung).
