'Blue Planet II Live in Concert' will tour Australia in March 2019 with UK superstar Joanna Lumley to host and live narrate this unique concert experience.
Following the success of the BBC Studios Natural History Series 'Blue Planet II', the live incarnation will bring the wonders and mysteries of the planet’s oceans and its characterful inhabitants to the stage.
Narrated live by the iconic Joanna Lumley in her first Australian stage appearance, and accompanied by the original immersive music score by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and David Fleming, the concert will be performed live by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra respectively.
This will be Joanna's first time on stage in Australia. She's one of the most recognisable and loved British personalities, starting her career as a model in the '60s and starring as Patsy in the hit comedy series 'Absolutely Fabulous'.
