Embassy Theatre, In Partnership with Silverback Films and GEAlive, Presents Our Planet Live in Concert
Fort Wayne, Ind. (October 27, 2022) – The Embassy Theatre is excited to present Our Planet Live in Concert on Friday, April 7, 2023 at 8:00 p.m. The Emmy Award®-winning Netflix documentary is now a live-in-concert experience accompanied by an orchestra, with a donation for each performance to benefit Our Planet producing partner organization World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Member pre-sale is currently active; tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, October 28 at 10 a.m.
The Netflix documentary has been reimagined as a live experience, combining highlights from the series with brand-new orchestrations and sequences to create an immersive journey across our planet for audiences of all ages. Specially developed by the series producers WWF, Silverback Films and Oscar®-winning composer Steven Price, Our Planet Live in Concert is narrated on screen by legendary broadcaster David Attenborough.
Patrons will be mesmerized as the landmark eight-part Our Planet documentary series becomes a two-hour live show filled with beautiful visuals and sound effects, all accompanied by an orchestra. The show brings the incredible cinematography of Our Planet to the big screen, encouraging audiences to explore the wonders of earth’s wildlife and their habitats. Dazzling, intelligent lighting enhances the visual experience beyond the screen, bringing the beauty of the planet we call home to theater seats.
Our Planet took the world by storm when it was released in April 2019. Taking viewers on a spectacular journey of discovery and showcasing the beauty and increased fragility of our natural world, the series explores the fact that humans have become the greatest threat to the survival of our planet and all of the species that inhabit it. The series also highlights that there is still time to address these challenges, if we act now.
Our Planet Live in Concert brings together some of the world’s greatest creatives, filmmakers, musicians and conservationists to provide an experience like no other.
Concert producer Floris Douwes at GEAlive comments, “Our Planet Live in Concert truly is an event! The creators of Our Planet have edited the most breathtaking sequences from the series to deliver a unique and compelling narrative to live audiences on a large screen in full HD quality.”
Colin Butfield, former Executive Producer for Our Planet at WWF, states: “We’ve seen firsthand the impact this series has generated by showcasing the wonders of our planet while also addressing the urgent need to protect it for future generations. We hope to elevate this message and deepen the audience’s engagement with the natural world by bringing the documentary into the event space on such a great scale.”
Composer Steven Price’s Emmy-nominated score has been reworked for this epic two-hour event, which will be performed by an 18-piece orchestra. The Academy Award®-winning composer states, “I can’t wait for the audience to experience the music of Our Planet live. Using a combination of the most memorable sequences from the Netflix series exclusively designed for this show, the incredible musicians plan to take you on a journey that celebrates the wonders of our planet—the one home we all share—whilst showing the urgent need to treasure and protect it.”
