Heart-in-your-mouth fights for survival, the beauty of otherworldly wilderness, quiet moments of tenderness and tales of tragedy and hope, you can witness the wonders of Planet Earth III Live In Concert on October 7, right here in Manchester. The fascinating musical event is set to enchant the crowds of AO Arena in 2024, following on from previous successful iterations Blue Planet and Planet Earth II. You will be able to take a seat, sit back and watch as a giant LED screen bursts into incredible life with sparkling 4k footage, all soundtracked by the talented City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
What can you expect at Planet Earth III Live in Concert?
This mesmerising journey to places known and unknown across the globe is the result of 1,904 days of filming in 43 countries across six continents. You’ll be transported everywhere from the thick tangle of a Canadian rainforest where rare cream-coloured spirit bears hunt for salmon, to the extreme wilds of the Gobi desert where a Snow Leopard raises her cubs. Planet Earth III Live In Concert immerses you in these different worlds with their sweeping visuals and live music, every note played echoing the emotions of the scenes playing out on screen.
We can thank Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and Sara Barone of Bleeding Fingers Music for the powerful soundtracks that add even more epic gravitas to the scenes unfolding. You are sure to be swept away with moving melodies and gripped by deep ominous brass, a worthy pairing to the soothing voice of David Attenborough, who shares the importance behind what you are witnessing with the incredible tales of wildlife and plantlife in the natural world. The concert uses various segments from Planet Earth III, covering the themed episodes Forests, Extremes, Heroes, Humans and more, each scene as beautifully shot as the last.
This mesmerising concert is a must for fans of the BBC nature show, those in search of an unforgettable night out with a loved one or those who simply fancy hearing breathtaking talents of the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra live. Not only will you be whisked away to far-flung places and treated to bewitching live music, but you can enjoy the lively atmosphere of AO Arena and lose yourself in the show with a refreshing drink and food in hand. It’ll make for a transporting experience all round.
