Reportedly the most costly environmental documentary that the BBC ever gave the thumbs up to, the eleven episode Discovery Channel-broadcasted Planet Earth series – narrated by David Attenborough in Great Britain and Sigourney Weaver in America – garnered its fair share of fans with good reason.
Beyond the eco-friendly subject matter, the comprehensive account of Mother Nature’s most secretive and far-off creatures doing what they do best was both spell-binding and awe-inspiring.
Those who went gaga over the footage of a piranha feeding frenzy, soaring aerial views of the globe’s highest mountain peaks and New Guinea’s most ostentatious birds of paradise strutting their stuff might have been so dazzled by the eye candy that they failed to pay much attention to the musical score…but it was equally as gripping.
Created by British musician George Fenton – an Emmy-winning composer who has scored everything from Ghandi and Groundhog Day to The Blue Planet and BBC’s Life – those who live in the Dallas area are in for a treat when Planet Earth Live premieres for two nights this upcoming June 25 and June 26.
Imagine being outside with a starry sky overhead as you experience a soul-stirring rendition of Fenton’s Planet Earth compositions by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra — here’s a little sample of what you can expect.
With tickets running between $35 all the way up to $85, there’s a manageable price point to fit every budget, so what are you waiting for?!? Time to get your culture on!
