Following the success of Planet Earth in Concert last year, BBC Frozen Planet in Concert comes to the big screen accompanied the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra this June.
Conductor Benjamin Northey and the HK Phil will take you to the ends of the earth on an extraordinary cinematic journey across the Arctic and Antarctic to witness the extreme conditions, incredible beauty, and mystical creatures of the polar regions.
“As ‘Frozen Planet in Concert’ proves, nature film has become poetry in motion, buoyed and transported not so much by words as music,” LA Times said.
Composer George Fenton is one of the most successful composers in the UK and is best known for his works in film and television. Winner of Ivor Novello, BAFTA and Emmy Awards, Fenton has written scores for over 100 films and has collaborated with some of the most influential filmmakers.

It was renamed in 1957 and became fully professional in 1974. The Orchestra presents more than 150 concerts over a 44-week season and attracts more than 200,000 music lovers annually.
