See the very best National Geographic footage come to life this month at the Gold Coast’s Home of the Arts, with a world-class orchestra and choir production under the stars that truly has to be seen to be believed.

Combining stunning natural history footage with an original symphony performed by Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra – ‘Symphony for our World’ is a breathtaking musical journey that will dazzle and inspire audiences when it takes the stage on Saturday May 25.

Audiences will be left in awe as the live orchestra and choir serenade them throughout the starlit performance, taking the crowd on an adventure through some of the world’s most incredible wildlife imagery from over 130-years of incredible National Geographic history.

From the depths of the sea, along coastlines, over mountains and across the sky, the incredible imagery is perfectly complemented by the original symphony by Emmy and BAFTA-nominated Bleeding Fingers Music.

The moving live orchestral performance has been touring throughout the year, having first premiered to a full house at Davies Symphony Hall in 2018 and drawing, unsurprisingly, a standing ovation. This month, it will arrive at HOTA for just one night – filling the purpose-built outdoor stage for one goose bump-inducing performance only.

Gourmet, indulgent hampers will be available for the whole family to enjoy throughout the performance, with finger food the preferred choice for viewers immersed in the ambience and surroundings of the captivating 90-minute show.

It’s all happening on Saturday May 25 at 6.30pm. Tickets start from $20 and children under 15 go FREE!
