Tickets are now on sale for the Arabian Gulf debut of BBC Worldwide’s Blue Planet in Concert, which will open the UAE capital’s stopover of the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race (VOR) on 12th and 13th December.
Blue Planet in Concert combines spectacular, specially-cut high definition footage from the award-winning TV series – The Blue Planet – with the emotional and evocative musical score performed by a live orchestra.
Featuring five times Oscar-nominated composer George Fenton with a 75-piece orchestra, the highly acclaimed show will be performed on a purpose-built, floating stage in the waters off Abu Dhabi’s Corniche under a 10-metre wide screen.
Fenton said: “I've been lucky enough to perform the Blue Planet concert across the world in some of the most iconic venues from the Hollywood Bowl to Sydney Opera House but the prospect of playing for the first time in Arabia, with a 75-piece orchestra on a floating stage with the Abu Dhabi skyline as a backdrop, promises to be the show's most spectacular setting yet.”
Tickets range from Platinum VIP seating in a hospitality terrace with cinema surround sound for Dhs600 to Gold seating at Dhs500 and Silver at Dhs300. Tickets are available via www.timeouttickets.com or in person at the Dubai Media City box offices. Tickets bought online can be collected from the venue in Abu Dhabi on the day of the event.
