The Blue Planet Live! based on the celebrated BBC/ Discovery Channel documentary The Blue Planet makes its first stop in Singapore at last! These captivating sequences are synchronised impeccably with an emotional and epic score by award-winning composer, George Fenton.
The unique two hour edit draws audiences to the countless awe inspiring scenes of the dramatic underwater world of the oceans. The beautiful and atmospheric music will be brought to life by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra conducted by Joshua Kangming Tan, Singapore Symphony Chorus and the Hallelujah Chorus.
From the magnificent shots of majestic blue whales, right through to the weird and wonderful world of the deep, The Blue Planet Live! carries a message that goes beyond pure entertainment. George Fenton has said: “The Blue Planet Live! offers a unique and emotional ride, experiencing the story of life beneath the oceans on a theatrical scale. The show is presented in a way that heightens the drama, the fascination and, ultimately, the awareness and I very much look forward to the opportunity of taking the show to new audiences.”
