What: Based on the BAFTA-winning natural history series, Blue Planet II Live in Concert allows you to experience footage from the show on the big screen while enjoying a mesmerising score performed live by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.

Blue Planet II Live in Concert will share the wonders and mysteries of the planet’s oceans and the creatures that inhabit them, with the help of a beautiful score composed by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and David Fleming.

The event also offers the chance to hear from respected marine biologist Dr Riley Elliott, who will narrate the evening.

The scientist and TV presenter has dedicated his life to the conservation of the ocean’s most formidable predator, the shark.

His passion for sharks has seen him author a book, give a TEDX Talk, and film countless Shark Week shows for Discovery Channel, including a new six-part series called Shark School.

Elliott says it’s “an absolute privilege” to host the event.

“The words and imagery of the BBC and David Attenborough are what inspired me to become a scientist of the natural world,” he says.

“It taught me the recipe of public communication of science using stimulating visual imagery.

“To do this now, on their stage, is a dream come true, but ultimately I hope it will engage the public, create awareness of our natural world and the struggles it faces, and inspire positive change and conservation, for nature and for ourselves.”
