Our Planet Live In Concert – Dublin
16th October 2020
The Emmy Award®-winning series is now becoming a live experience.
Combining highlights from the series with some brand new arrangements, the production will create an immersive journey across Our Planet. Specially developed by the series producers Silverback Films, and Oscar®-winning composer Steven Price, Our Planet Live in Concert includes new on-screen narration by legendary broadcaster, David Attenborough. Blending the outstanding natural world visuals of Our Planet with creative innovations in live production, this concert will be a live spectacle like no other.
The landmark eight-part Our Planet documentary series is being reimagined into a two-hour arena show with amazing visual and sound effects. It will be accompanied by a breathtaking 66-piece orchestra and live vocalist, the magnificent Lisa Hannigan. Three giant screens will present the incredible cinematography of Our Planet on a scale that has never been seen before, allowing audiences to be fully immersed into the wonders of the Earth’s wildlife and their habitats. Dazzling, intelligent lighting will heighten the visual experience beyond the screens and around the arena, programmed to run in sync with the footage.
Our Planet took the world by storm when it was released in April 2019. The series explores the fact that humans have become the greatest threat to the survival of our planet, and all the species that inhabit it. It helped people to understand what is at stake and realise how imperative it is to lobby businesses and governments to start paying attention. All net profits from the Our Planet Live in Concert will be donated to WWF’s global Our Planet education and awareness initiatives. The creators are also introducing measures to ensure the production is environmentally friendly, working with host venues to minimise the environmental impact of each event.
