Philharmonia Orchestra

Planet Earth in Concert

A cosmic collision of spectacular visuals and live orchestral music paint an awe inspiring portrait of our Planet Earth.

Conductor George Fenton
Soprano Haley Glennie-Smith

From the towering peaks of Nepal to the lush green of the Amazon, from the dry-sculpted crescents of the Sahara to the glistening polar ice caps, our planet is truly spectacular.

Captured like never before in the world’s most successful natural history television series, the BBC’s landmark documentary Planet Earth tells an astonishing story; following the journey of the sun across continents to visit different habitats and oceans and delve into the private lives of animals.

Emmy award-winning British composer George Fenton scored the series and tonight conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra and special guest soloist Haley Glennie-Smith in a stunning performance that combines emotional and evocative live orchestral music with awe-inspiring reworked HD footage from the BBC series.
