Marking its Arabian premiere, the highly acclaimed show will open the 2014/15 Volvo Ocean Race (VOR) Destination Village on Corniche Breakwater on December 12
Having previously played to sell-out audiences in the USA, Europe, the Far East and Australia, Blue Planet in Concert combines spectacular, specially cut high definition footage from the award winning TV series – The Blue Planet – with the emotional and evocative musical score performed by a live orchestra. The show will raise the curtain on the three-week stopover celebrations.
Two 90-minute evening performances of Blue Planet in Concert will be shown on December 12 and 13 on a 10-metre wide screen placed on a purpose-built, floating stage in the waters off Abu Dhabi’s Corniche and will be accompanied by a 78-piece orchestra led by a celebrity guest conductor.
The Volvo Ocean Race stopover festival will take place in a purpose-built VOR Destination Village on the Corniche Breakwater, from December 12 to January 3. There’ll be dhow racing, pearl diving showcases, traditional sea shanty performances, ocean conservation exhibitions and activities such as beach clean-ups and turtle conservation talks.
