National Geographic Live, Seattle Symphony, and Benaroya Hall bring a new season of adventure and exploration to Seattle beginning November 2015. Here is your chance to meet extraordinary explorers, filmmakers, and photographers in compelling, lavishly illustrated presentations. These accomplished individuals are both documenting and helping to preserve our world’s natural beauty, while expanding the frontiers of human knowledge and achievement.

New this season:
We are expanding the series to include a fall event—Into Africa’s Okavango: Measuring a Mighty Wilderness—in November!

Sunday subscribers: Five of the six programs in your series will take place in the S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium. Now there’s plenty of room to bring friends and family to experience Nat Geo Live on Sundays! Gorongosa Reborn: A Cameraman’s Journal will be held in the Recital Hall on February 21.

Series tickets are currently on sale. Check the links below for more information about Nat Geo Live events in Seattle.
