The Cosmos with Professor Brian Cox & BBC SO

Live from the Barbican

Ticket availability

Join one of the world’s pre-eminent physicists for a mind-bending musical voyage through space and time, set to a soundtrack inspired by the great unknowns of the Universe.

What does it mean to live small, finite lives in an infinite Universe? Prepare to confront some of the biggest questions of them all: questions of life, death, and the very meaning of our existence.

Cox draws on spectacular imagery and discoveries from 21st century cosmology to begin to provide some answers, while Dalia Stasevska conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in works by composers who grappled with these same questions through their music.

Under new guidelines, we’ve fewer available seats in our venues and thoroughly clean between performances. You can only sit in the same seating cluster as someone from your own household (or support bubble) and we ask you to not swap seats so we can maintain a safe distance between you and other groups.

Tickets must be booked online in advance. Tickets to watch the concert online from your home are only available until the event begins.

Co-produced by the Barbican and BBC SO
