Blue Planet II brings beauty of world's oceans to Brussels

Explore breath-taking scenes on a giant screen, accompanied by a full symphony orchestra and narration in English

A live adaptation of the BBC's award-winning oceans documentary series Blue Planet II is coming to Brussels next weekend.

The highly acclaimed series, which premiered in 2017, takes the viewer on a magical journey through underwater worlds - from polar seas to coral reefs - involving 6,000 hours of underwater footage from expeditions across 39 countries.

Now some of the most spectacular scenes have been transformed into a live show. The unique video footage, projected on a 200m² LED wall, is accompanied by a musical score composed by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and David Fleming - and performed live by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. The Brussels show will be narrated in English by local voiceover artist Richard Wells.
