Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in collaboration with Arts Centre Melbourne for Asia TOPA present
Asia TOPA celebrates the legendary composer-conductor Joe Hisaishi with a huge encore performance of his music from the films of Studio Ghibli.
His return follows four sold-out concerts with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in April 2018.
As long-standing friends and collaborators, Hisaishi and director Hayao Miyazaki have worked together for more than 30 years, including on nine films from renowned production house Studio Ghibli.
Spend a grand evening at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl as the MSO and Chorus perform these magical scores – conducted by Hisaishi himself – while heart-stirring montages from renowned Miyazaki films including Howl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro and the Oscar-winning Spirited Away play on a huge screen.
