Planet Earth in Concert

Planet Earth: The Television Series

This breathtaking television series combines rare action, unimaginable scale, impossible locations and intimate moments with our planet’s best loved, wildest and most elusive creatures. From the towering peaks of Nepal to the lush green of the Amazon and the dry-sculpted crescents of the Sahara to the glistening polar icecaps, our world is truly spectacular. Taking 5 years to make, the first episode in the UK was seen by over 12 million viewers and in the US, Planet Earth is the highest rated natural history programme of all time.

The Concert

The concert is approximately 90 minutes long, and is performed with a full symphony orchestra playing live to specially edited footage on a giant screen.

Following the journey of the sun across continents, the audience visits different habitats and oceans and even delves into the private life of the snow leopard. Each sequence tells a story and is a celebration of our lucky planet, whose destiny changed four and a half billion years ago when a cosmic collision took place and created what we know to be Planet Earth.

The Planets Trilogy: The Blue Planet in Concert, Planet Earth in Concert and Frozen Planet in Concert, are an epic and immersive experience in the most dynamic form.
