The journey in Space Opera is designed and harmonized entirely with Gustav Holst's The Planets, Op. 32, which is one of his most beloved and admired works. It was written in 1914, riding on the trend at the time of a renewed and growing interest for astrology and theosophy. The opera was completed in two distinct phases: the first phase with Mars, Venus and Jupiter and the second phase with Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Mercury, after a hiatus with the completion of other compositions. The last note was written in 1916. It is important to point out that Holst did not write scores dedicated to Earth, the Sun and the Moon (and neither on comets, nebulas or the Milky Way), so the correspondent tracks have been completely remixed to cover the entire passage of the Space Opera's journey.
