PLANET EARTH II - LIVE IN CONCERT

Following the sensational success of the highly acclaimed and award-winning BBC nature documentary planet earth, the latest sequel of the TV series, PLANET EARTH II goes into a new round, and with a live adaption, too: PLANET EARTH II – LIVE IN CONCERT is coming up in spring this year for the first time on a grand European tour. A total of 23 cities in nine countries are on the tour programme from February until April 2018.
 
In 2006 the BBC documentary PLANET EARTH revolutionised nature films and changed our perspective of the world in which we live. Ten years later, this was recently followed by PLANET EARTH II, the long-awaited continuation of this spectacular TV portrait of our planet. Together with its co-producers BBC America, ZDF, Tencent and France Télèvisions, the BBC once again managed to set new standards in the field of nature documentaries. The camera teams spent three years shooting PLANET EARTH II. They filmed on a total of 2,089 days during 117 trips to 40 countries, and recorded unique pictures of our earth and its inhabitants with the help of drones, camera traps, telephoto lenses, low-light and high-speed cameras. Thanks to advanced technology, it was possible to experience nature from a completely new angle – closer, more immersive and more surprising than ever before.
 
After the first broadcast of PLANET EARTH II in the United Kingdom won record viewing figures for the BBC, with individual clips causing a veritable hype online, while also achieving success among TV viewers over here, the live in-concert version will now present the fascinating scenes of the series on a gigantic screen.
 
PLANET EARTH II – LIVE IN CONCERT is a gripping mixture of symphonic concert and nature film:
 
Cinematic highlights of the breath-taking footage of the series were specially compiled to make PLANET EARTH II – LIVE IN CONCERT. The audience watch animals in great detail and follow them at close range in their natural or conquered habitats. PLANET EARTH II – LIVE IN CONCERT combines the optical opulence of the brilliant nature and animal pictures with the stirring live acoustics of an eighty-member symphony orchestra. The show thus becomes a rousing live event and an impressive visual and musical journey.
 
The score, which perfectly accentuates the images and adds its own special emotional charge, was composed by the Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe for Bleeding Fingerns Music. Zimmer has already composed the music for more than 120 films, including 12 Years As A Slave, Batman vs. Superman, Inception, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, Sherlock Holmes, Pirates of the Caribbean 2, Spider Man 2, Gladiator, Pearl Harbor, Kung Fu Panda, Rain Main and Thelma & Louise.
 
The renowned “The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra” with choir, conducted by Matthew Freeman, intones the compositions that have been written exclusively by Zimmer and his team for the live adaptation. This creates a varied and highly moving soundscape for the unique shots, on which the BBC animal and nature filmmakers have worked for years. Alternating between cheerfulness and drama, the music draws the viewer even deeper into the events on the screen.
 
Between the film sequences, which are not commentated, a well-known live presenter will report on the work of the documentary makers, explain impressively how the recordings originated, and provide interesting background information on PLANET EARTH II.
