A live version of Blue Planet II is coming to Dublin next March for a show in the 3Arena.
The BAFTA Award winning television series narrated by David Attenborough goes on tour across Ireland and around Europe. Kicking off on February 12th, 2020, the arena tour will travel to such countries as Germany, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Holland and Belgium. Following this, the tour will complete 13 dates in March, 2020.
The show comes to Ireland on the 23rd and the 24th of March as it hits The SSE Arena Belfast and 3Arena Dublin respectively.
The combination of the huge 4K Ultra HD LED screen and the live orchestra will show highlights from the series for a full two hours. Host Anita Rani will be joined by the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra who will be performing Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and David Fleming’s score, while being conducted by Matthew Freeman.
Conductor Matthew Freeman says, “Seeing the footage in these huge arenas on an enormous LED screen, with all that colour and those underwater worlds so closely photographed, accompanied by a 64-piece orchestra and a 16-voice choir through a huge, state-of-the-art PA system, it really is a phenomenal and powerful experience. We have extraordinary visuals, heightened with music that takes the viewer to another level. It’s really quite emotional.”
