For the first time BBC Earth Concerts arrive in Italy: a unique and immersive experience through three different performances: Planet Earth, The Blue Planet e Frozen Planet. I BBC Concerts will be presented at theMilan Auditorium over a series of appointments for a total of 9 evenings in the months of July, August and September 2014.


The extraordinary images of the best nature documentaries of the BBCprojected on the big screen, will be accompanied in the theatre by engaging unpublished music performed strictly live by the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, conducted by Danilo Grassi, who only a few months ago collaborated with Barley and laVerdi on the occasion of the night dedicated to Frank Zappa.

I BBC Concerts are the perfect bridge between the world ofedutainment and music: a choice in perfect coincidence with what has always been Barley Arts' aims and intentions.


A line-up of 58 musicians between strings, woodwinds, keyboards, percussion and harp, coordinated by the director of laVerdi Danilo Grassiwill perform live in thematic evenings the music created by the composer English George Fenton - winner of Ivor Novello, BAFTA and Emmy awards for the music of The Blue Planet - to accompany the spectacular BBC nature images.


Each appointment will be dedicated to one of the British broadcaster's three documentaries about life on our planet:  Planet Earthwhich investigates the evolution of environments - from the peaks of Nepal to the lush vegetation of the Amazon rainforest and the sculpted dunes of the Sahara - through marvellous  slow-motion sequences; The Blue Planetwhich explores the seabed teeming with life to unexplored depths; finally Frozen Planetwhich captures all the fragile, awe-inspiring beauty and magnificent power of the elements in the vastest ice deserts on earth.


The shows The Blue Planet, Planet Earth e Frozen Planet in Concertconceived under the supervision of the composer of the original music George Fentonhave been accompanied by the world's leading orchestras since 2010 and performed in some of the biggest venue in North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, collecting a series of sold out and received rave reviews from critics.
