The Long Center for the Performing Arts is pleased to announce the Austin premiere of National Geographic: Symphony for Our World, a new partnership between National Geographic Partners and Jason Michael Paul Entertainment, Inc., on July 28 at 8 p.m. in Dell Hall.Combining stunning National Geographic natural history footage with a live performance of the theme—created by Emmy- and BAFTA-nominated Bleeding Fingers Music and featuring composers Austin Fray and Andrew Christie—by the Austin Symphony Orchestra, Symphony for Our World is a breathtaking musical journey through some of the world’s most incredible wildlife spectacles. The show, which recently thrilled audiences with a special, sold-out preview in San Francisco on Earth Day, April 22, will travel to more than 25 cities in the U.S. and around the world. Tickets are on sale at thelongcenter.org.
This inspiring 90-minute performance will feature groundbreaking imagery and storytelling from 130 years of beloved National Geographic history matched in perfect synchronization with a live orchestra and choir for each engagement. Driven by a five-part composition, Symphony for Our World pairs artistry with science as it brings viewers from the depths of the sea, up to the coastlines, onto land, through mountains and finally into the sky. Each environment will be accompanied by a different orchestral movement, resulting in a powerful musical tribute to the beauty and wonders of our wild world.
