WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Celebrate the greatest treasures of our planet in a thrilling, unique way. Planet Earth II Live in Concert brings us closer to the spellbinding animals, landscapes and wildlife dramas on our planet than ever before. This musical and visual concert features breath-taking footage from the highly acclaimed BBC series, shown on big screens, accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Jessica Cottis, playing the remarkable music by Jacob Shea, Jasha Klebe and the Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer, and hosted from the stage by Mike Gunton, Creative Director of the Natural History Unit and Executive Producer of Planet Earth II. In this extraordinary musical safari we rub shoulders with our acrobatic primate cousins in the steaming jungles of Madagascar, race alongside fearsome hunting lions in the remote sandy deserts of Namibia, face stormy Antarctic seas with a family of penguins and feel the raw tension as a baby iguana tries to escape the clutches of deadly racer snakes. We will tap our toes along with dancing grizzly bears and be swept away by the bravery of a mother snow leopard.
