Frozen Planet in Concert

An unforgettable visual and musical journey through the wildest and most beautiful parts of our Frozen Planet.

Frozen Planet: The Television Series

Frozen Planet takes the audience as close as they can possibly get to visit the epic, majestic and true wilderness of the Polar Regions; this is the poles as you’ve never seen them before. This is where life thrives in the most extraordinary conditions. With the most extensive aerial filming of Antarctica ever, the series explored the greatest wilderness left on Earth.

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.

The concert is divided into two halves – the Arctic and the Antarctic. We take the audience through a journey of extreme conditions, incredible beauty and meet mystical creatures including the great Grey Owl and spend time with our very special guests – our funny and loveable friends, the Penguins. The story of Adeile penguins stealing stones received millions of hits when it was released on YouTube. The sequence sends the audience into fits of laughter, it’s infectious. You can’t help but smile.
