"An endearing portrait of a collective obsession...Great characters. I was
captivated by it. Well worth seeking out." Julie Rigg, ABC RN.

In December 2010 over five hundred performers came together under the baton of maestro John Curro to perform Havergal Brian's monster of a symphony - the Gothic. Filmed over seven years in Australia and the UK this is a gripping, funny and inspirational story about the quest by a group of music lovers to stage the Mt.Everest of classical music. The Curse of the Gothic Symphony reveals the passion, the obsession, the incalculable scale required to stage a massive event that has eluded others for eighty years.
