The Long Center presents National Geographic: Symphony for Our World
The Long Center for the Performing Arts will present the Austin premiere of National Geographic: Symphony for Our World. Combining stunning National Geographic natural history footage with a live performance of the theme by the Austin Symphony Orchestra, Symphony for Our World is a breathtaking musical journey through some of the world’s most incredible wildlife spectacles.
This inspiring 90-minute performance will feature groundbreaking imagery and storytelling from 130 years of beloved National Geographic history matched in perfect synchronization with a live orchestra and choir for each engagement. Driven by a five-part composition, Symphony for Our World pairs artistry with science as it brings viewers from the depths of the sea, up to the coastlines, onto land, through mountains and finally into the sky. Each environment will be accompanied by a different orchestral movement, resulting in a powerful musical tribute to the beauty and wonders of our wild world.
