The Russian National Orchestra – The BBC’s “Blue Planet” Video Spectacular
Broadcast Journalist Jane Pauley, narrator
The Russian National Orchestra, conducted by Lucas Richman, will perform a luminous score by British composer George Fenton, accompanying remarkable BBC film sequences. Renowned broadcast journalist Jane Pauley joins the Orchestra on stage as narrator, giving the audience a unique perspective of aquatic life including schools of fish migrating across the oceans, species of whales, and other spectacular marine life, all beautifully shot in high definition. In addition to the video screen on the pavilion, a new screen on the lawn will allow audience members seated under the stars to enjoy the visually captivating images. This “Blue Planet” Spectacular continues the BBC series that the Mann showcased last summer with the wildly popular “Planet Earth” concert.
