Two set Guinness records, more than 250,000 spectators worldwide, sold-out halls from New Zealand to the Arctic Circle, are part of Professor Brian Cox's astonishing journey that takes the audience to the farthest corners of the universe, into supermassive black holes and through the latest theories of origin. On this unforgettable journey on Tuesday, April 9, 2024 , with the inimitable professor Cox, the local audience will also go in the Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall.

Brian Cox is one of the favorite contemporary physicists who helped popularize science with his work. The number of over three million followers on Twitter, numerous hit shows such as "Brian Cox's Adventures in Space and Time", "Wonders of Life", "Universe With Brian Cox", "Human Universe" and others speak volumes about his popularity. One of the most famous physicists of today, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson stated that Cox is more famous in the UK than the legendary Carl Sagan was in the USA, which considering the influence of the great Sagan, is a compliment one can only wish for.

In addition to numerous awards in the field of science, the versatile professor Cox can also boast of the status of a musical star. Namely, during his studies, Cox was a keyboardist in the band D:Ream, whose hit "Thing Can Only Get Better" rose to the top of the UK singles chart, and Cox soon decided to become a science star from a musical idol.

His current tour, “Horizons: A 21st Century Space Odyssey,” which The Guardian called “a stunning reminder that human life is both insignificant and incredibly precious,” is breathtaking and simply not to be missed.

Brian Cox arrives in Zagreb's Lisinski Hall with an impressive multimedia scenography never seen before in Croatia and invites everyone interested to join him in this magnificent journey.

The show is performed entirely in English.
