Whether you're a big nature nerd or err on the indifferent side to the science of it all, chances are you've seen at least some of Sir David Attenborough's Planet Earth. The BBC nature documentary series — narrated by the man himself and accompanied by an epic score from Hans Zimmer — first aired back in 2006, and its follow-up second season, Planet Earth II, was released just two years ago. But the bits you've seen on TV or YouTube are sure to be belittled when the BBC, together with Auckland Live, brings the live show to New Zealand next May.

Like the performance of Titanic and other classic film scores we've seen in recent months, Planet Earth II Live in Concert will see the documentary screened in all its glory accompanied by a live orchestra. And it's a big score. The music for Planet Earth II was composed by none other than Hans Zimmer (responsible for epics like The Lion KingGladiatorThe Dark Knight Rises and Inception) alongside Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe. In Auckland, the score will be performed by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra with conductor David Kay at the helm. The guest narrator has been revealed at New Zealand's 'First Gentleman', Clarke Gayford.

General public tickets are available via Auckland Live.
