For more than three decades, Hayao Miyazaki has been hailed as the shining star of Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli, spinning gorgeous on-screen stories about magical worlds, buses shaped like cats, moving houses, friendly fish and more. No one can tell an enchanting tale like the masterful filmmaker — but, no one can make melodic music to match like Joe Hisaishi.

First collaborating with Miyazaki on 1984's Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, the composer has provided the score to every one of the director's features since then, spanning everything from My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away to Ponyo and The Wind Rises. That's quite the collection of moving movie music, and it's coming to Melbourne for one night only with Hisaishi himself at the podium.

After taking over Hamer Hall for four sold-out shows in 2018, Hisaishi and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra are heading to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Saturday, February 29, 2020 for Music from the Studio Ghibli Films of Hayao Miyazaki.

The sounds of Ghibli will echo through Kings Domain while Hisaishi conducts the full orchestra and the MSO Chorus, and a montage of clips from the likes of Howl's Moving CastlePrincess Mononoke — and the rest of Miyazaki and Hisaishi's shared filmography — plays on the huge screen.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Monday, October 21 via the MSO website.
