Black Hole Symphony

After a completely sold-out, world premiere run, the smash-hit production Black Hole Symphony returns to the Charles Hayden Planetarium for a four-night run! Don’t miss your chance to experience the entrancing and immersive new production from the Museum of Science, Boston and Multiverse Concert Series.

Black Hole Symphony is a symphonic journey through spacetime, performed by a live chamber orchestra under the dome of the Charles Hayden Planetarium. Join us to explore the unfolding story of supermassive black holes as engines of gravity, light, and creation. This revolutionary new show is a unique collaboration between astrophysicists of the Harvard-Smithsonian CFA and Black Hole Initiative with the musicians of the Multiverse Concert Series. Composer David Ibbett has sonified the light of black hole galaxies as musical notes and chords, woven into a dramatic electro-symphonic score set to immersive 3D visuals from the Charles Hayden Planetarium.

Over the course of an evening, audiences will be plunged into deep space riding relativistic jets of plasma, guided through the dense dust torus, broad-line clouds, and ultimately reach the blazing accretion disk on the event horizon of a supermassive black hole.

Experience the distant universe made real through art, science, and music, only at the Museum of Science, Boston!
