In what's becoming an increasingly popular trend, movies with dramatic scores are being offered up with live orchestra backing — making them an event that extends beyond the screen.
The latest to receive the symphony experience is none other than the BBC/Discovery production of "Planet Earth" — one of the first nature documentaries to be shot entirely in high-definition.
For two nights, on June 25 and 26, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will be performing the score live while the documentary is running. The symphony will be conducted by Emmy-winning composer George Fenton.
Tickets range in price from $35-$85 and are available here.
Anyone going? It's sure to be a visual feast for both the ears and eyes — and truly something I'd love to see replicated around the nation. While they're at it, perhaps something focused around Discovery's awesome "LIFE" series could be arranged as well. Live narration by David Attenborough would be something else!
