National Geographic: Symphony for Our World Comes to Overture
December 27, 2018
National Geographic and Jason Michael Paul Entertainment, Inc., today announced an all-new tour for National Geographic: Symphony for Our World, which will visit Madison on Saturday, March 30, 2019, at 8 p.m. Symphony for Our World combines stunning National Geographic natural history footage with an original symphony and theme created by Emmy- and BAFTA-nominated by Bleeding Fingers Music, performed live by a full orchestra and chorus provided by The Madison Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Featuring composers Austin Fray and Andrew Christie, the show brings audiences a breathtaking musical journey coupled with some of the world’s most incredible wildlife spectacles.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on November 23 at the Overture Center Ticket Office (201 State Street), by phone (608.258.4141) or online (overture.org). Groups of 10+ may be eligible for discounted tickets; for information, please call 608.258.4159.
The inspiring 90-minute, live orchestral performance uses groundbreaking imagery and storytelling from over 130 years of National Geographic history matched in perfect synchronization with Madison Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. The show is based on the national television broadcast of “Symphony for Our World,” an hour-long special that premiered globally earlier this year in 140 countries, commercial-free, on Nat Geo WILD.
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.
