Following the success of the highly acclaimed “Frozen Planet in Concert” that was produced in partnership with BBC Earth, Holland America Line (HAL) is debuting “Planet Earth II in Concert” on nearly all of its ships.
Combining live music with a backdrop of breathtaking footage from the new, award-winning BBC Earth television series “Planet Earth II,” the exclusive show immerses guests in the most spectacular landscapes and habitats on Earth, bringing them eye-to-eye with the animals on screen.
“Planet Earth II in Concert” is presented through HAL’s partnership with BBC Earth, where world-class education and entertainment are brought onboard through behind-the-scenes films and live multimedia shows – in addition to special feature cruises with masterclass presentations from the television teams that work behind scenes on the programs.
“Our partnership with BBC Earth has been an extraordinary journey to all corners of the globe, and we can’t wait to take our guests into the world of ‘Planet Earth II’ with this stunning, new live concert,” said HAL president Orlando Ashford. “‘Frozen Planet in Concert’ has been one of our most popular shows, and ‘Planet Earth II’ will be the perfect encore. No one shows the spectacle of nature like BBC Earth.”
During “Planet Earth II in Concert,” guests rub shoulders with acrobatic primates in the jungles of Madagascar, race alongside hunting lions in the remote sandy deserts of Namibia, face stormy seas of the Great Southern Ocean with a family of penguins and tap their toes along with dancing grizzly bears – all accompanied by a live orchestra that plays the main theme music by Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer and the original music score by Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe for Bleeding Fingers Music.
“Planet Earth II in Concert” is rolling out across Eurodam, Koningsdam, Maasdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Oosterdam, Rotterdam, Veendam, Westerdam and Zuiderdam, and will be on board all of those ships by the end of April.
