The production, presented by General Entertainment Associates and MCD Productions, will reimagine Our Planetas a live experience, combining highlights from the series with some brand-new orchestrations and sequences to create an immersive journey across our planet. 

Specially developed by the series producers Silverback Films, and Oscar®-winning composer Steven Price, Our Planet Live in Concert is narrated on screen by legendary broadcaster, David Attenborough. The outstanding natural world visuals of Our Planet combined with a high-quality live production, will result in a spectacular live experience at Dublin’s 3Arena on 22 October 2022.  Tickets for Our Planet Live in Concert at the 3Arena priced from €46 including booking fee, and are available now from Ticketmaster. All tickets for the original show are valid for the rescheduled date.

The landmark eight-part Our Planet documentary series will be reimagined into a two-hour arena show with beautiful visual and sound effects, and will be accompanied by a 44-piece orchestra. A giant screen will present the incredible cinematography of Our Planet, allowing audiences to be fully immersed into the wonders of earth’s wildlife and their habitats. Dazzling, intelligent lighting will heighten the visual experience beyond the screen and around the arena, programmed to run in sync with the footage. 

All net profits from the Our Planet live project will be donated to WWF’s global Our Planet education and awareness initiatives. These include providing a wealth of educational materials for schools and young people, based on the series, with the aim to inspire and motivate the next generation to protect our planet. 

Our Planet took the world by storm when it was released in April 2019. Taking viewers on a spectacular journey of discovery, 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 the species that inhabit it. Whilst at times a hard watch, the series also highlights the fact that there is still time to address the challenges that we have created, if we act now. It helped people to understand what is at stake and realise how imperative it was to lobby businesses and governments to start paying attention. 

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 commented, “Our Planet Live in Concert truly is an event! The creators of Our Planet have edited the most breath-taking sequences from the series to deliver a unique and compelling narrative to live audiences on a large screen in full HD quality. We are thrilled and honored that the Oscar®-winning composer of the series, Steven Price, will be hosting and performing live at the shows.”

Colin Butfield, Executive Producer for Our Planet at WWF, said “We’ve seen first-hand 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 phenomenal scale.”  

Alastair Fothergill of Silverback Films is a pioneer in creating concerts around landmark wildlife series with his previous projects Blue Planet, Planet Earth and Frozen Planet. With the wealth of his experience he says, “Our Planet will be one of the most ambitious concert performances we have ever created combining the advanced sound and visual technology with Steven Price’s wonderful score and the powerful images from the series. We are very excited by the ambition of the Our Planet concerts to take the quality of the audience experience to a new level.”

Composer Steven Price’s Emmy-nominated score has been reworked for an epic two-hour performance, which will be performed by a symphony orchestra and conducted by Robert Ames. The Academy Award®-winning composer said “I can’t wait to bring the music of Our Planet to live audiences for the very first time. Using a combination of the most memorable sequences from the Netflix series exclusively designed for this show, our incredible musicians and I 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. It’s going to be an emotional and immersive experience and I hope to see you there.”

The ground-breaking Our Planet series premiered on Netflix in April 2019 to a global audience in 190 countries worldwide. It focuses on the breadth of the diversity of habitats around the world – from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America – giving an unprecedented look at the planet’s most precious species and fragile landscapes. More than just a showcase of the Earth’s natural wonders, the series also reveals why the natural world matters to us all and what steps must be taken to preserve it. Our Planet was watched by 33 million households in the first month of its release inspiring people around the world to connect to the one place we all call home. 

Our Planet Live in Concert is making a conscious effort to reduce the environmental impact of its events in many ways and this includes working with venues who are also committed to sustainability. 

Our Planet Live in Concert at the 3Arena on 22 October 2022.
