Blue Planet in Concert
Live accompaniment to BBC's 'Blue Planet (2001)'
The award winning bluedot festival will be opening its doors for the first time with Blue Planet in Concert, performed by the Halle Orchestra to kick off a brand new family four-day format. The show combines live music against a backdrop of remarkable footage from the original Blue Planet 2001 television series produced by the acclaimed BBC Natural History Unit.
Conducted by the composer, the Halle will perform George Fenton’s internationally critically acclaimed concert version of the original Blue Planet, promising a unique and awe-inspiring spectacle in HD, exploring the vast oceans on our pale blue dot, and the challenges we face for the future.
