London Climate Change Festival has announced its concert Song for Nature will stream online this month.
Featuring an all star line up of performers and speakers, the concert will be available on 28 and 29 October via stream.theatre ahead of the COP26 Climate Change Conference.
Directed by Dominic Dromgoole, Song for Nature was conceived to raise awareness of climate change featuring a spectacular line-up of performances.
The concert was originally filmed in March 2021 at the London Coliseum and originally broadcast on Earth Day 2021 on Sky Arts.
Song for Nature features a never-seen-before version of Kander and Ebb’s Yes, Say Yes with revised lyrics to reflect the climate crisis, performed by Janie Dee endorsed by John Kander himself.
What happens when Rob Brydon, Sheila Atim, David Suchet, Akram Khan, Michelle Terry, Brian May, Danielle De Niese, Gerald Finley, Beth Porch, Nathan Evans and many more come together at The London Coliseum with the ENO Orchestra and Chorus?
What happens when Dominic Dromgoole agrees to direct the show and then the audience can’t show up?
What happens when the producer, Janie Dee, can’t get a sponsor to get behind a broadcast in lockdown?
Song For Nature is a triumph of effort and artistic flair achieved in lockdown in the name of Mother Earth.
Other performers include Kerry Ellis, Dominic Norman, Tsemaye Bob-Egbe, Gerald Finley and Sam Lee.
Janie Dee, who launched the London Climate Change Festival in 2020, said: “We thrilled to be able to share Song for Nature with a wider audience. We originally intended to play to a live audience at the Coliseum, but then the second lockdown struck.
“Nevertheless, the show went on regardless being captured for broadcast by Sky Arts, and now, with a couple of previously unseen performances added, will be hosted on Stream.Theatre for 2 nights only. We hope you can join us to raise awareness of the impact of climate change around the world.”
Song For Nature streams 28 – 29 October 2021 from www.stream.theatre/home with tickets priced at £10.
