In 1982, the Australian cinema landscape changed forever when The Man from Snowy River captured the hearts of the nation and the world.

In celebration of its 40th anniversary year, Symphony orchestras around the country will perform the award-winning score by Bruce Rowland live to screen for the World Premiere of this iconic film.

Joining in the celebrations will be the original stars of the film Sigrid Thornton and Tom Burlinson, who at each performance will give audiences some insight into the making of the film and discuss why it remains so close to their hearts.

Inspired by the Banjo Patterson poem, The Man from Snowy River tells the exhilarating tale of Jim Craig, an 18-year-old who, after losing his father, must prove himself in the harsh high country and win the respect of the rugged mountain men. Along the way, he discovers love, adventure and a secret hidden in the hills more precious than any treasure.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to revisit the beloved Australian classic on the big screen with a full Symphony Orchestra.
