International cruise company Holland America Line has been confirmed as a Gold Sponsor for Blue Planet II Live in Concert, hosted by UK superstar Joanna Lumley in Australia next March.
Using footage from the BAFTA Award-winning BBC Studios Natural History television series Blue Planet II, presented by Sir David Attenborough, Blue Planet II Live in Concert will bring the wonders and mysteries of the planet’s oceans and its inhabitants to the stage. Narrated by the iconic Joanna Lumley in her first Australian stage appearance and accompanied by the original immersive music score by Hans Zimmer, Jacob Shea and David Fleming, the concert will be performed live by Australia’s finest symphony orchestras.
The sponsorship package will see Holland America Line integrated across the entire marketing campaign for the tour and strengthens Holland America Line’s existing fleet-wide partnership with BBC Earth, which launched in 2017.
The Blue Planet II Live in Concert partnership was brokered by Chantal Bindley, head of Live Entertainment at BBC Studios ANZ, and Brendan Wall, marketing manager for Holland America Line, Australia.
Blue Planet II Live in Concert will tour Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in March 2019 and is produced by BBC Studios and Andrew Kay & Associates. Tickets will be on sale from October 15, 2018 via www.blueplanet2live.com.au.
