Over the course of three days, in collaboration with the RNCM, the Hallé brings you a festival celebrating his best-loved works.

‘Lanting’s majestic photographs dance lightly across a huge screen over the orchestra, while some of Glass’s most elegant music pulses underneath … It’s a celebration of nature in all its glory.’ – The Washington Post

The LIFE Symphony was created by Frans Lanting in collaboration with Philip Glass to celebrate the splendour of life on Earth through music and images. With Lanting’s stunning photography projected on the big screen and Glass’s hallmark evolving textures mirroring the ever-changing landscape of life, this one-hour immersive audio-visual experience is an emotionally-charged journey through time, from the Big Bang to the present.
