National Geographic Symphony For Our World | Adelaide Festival | Elder Park | 2 Mar 2019

National Geographic Symphony For Our World – Adelaide Festival

Since its iconic yellow-spined magazines embraced imagery over a century ago, National Geographic has defined the art of nature photography and helped shape our understanding of the earth.

Its vaults are vast and now have been artfully plundered to create a spectacular 90 minute film synchronised to a gigantic five movement symphony for live orchestra and chorus.

Each movement focuses on an environment – Seas, Shore, Land, Mountains, Sky – and the cumulative power of the breathtaking footage is both humbling and awe-inspiring.

The music, from Hans Zimmer’s company Bleeding Fingers – the award winning team behind the Blue Planet series – is rich, atmospheric and uplifting; its orchestral power tailored to the magnificence of the natural world it underscores.

This live performance featuring Aurora, the Festival Statesmen Chorus and the Adelaide Festival Orchestra conducted by Jessica Gethin will be an unforgettable experience for you and your family, a fitting and celebratory opening to the 2019 Adelaide Festival.

For tens of thousands of years we worshipped our planet. For a few hundred we have abused, defiled and exploited it. Yes, this will be a gorgeous night in the park but, in some way too, it’s a reminder of what truly matters and the legacy we leave the children sitting with us.

This is a free event.
