Melburnians can once again dive under the sea at Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium and feel captivated by the glow of a Candlelight concert featuring famous film scores and magnificent marine creatures.
Invictus Quartet will sweep you away as they perform iconic songs from Disney films, Titanic, Pirates of the Caribbean and more. After a phenomenal response to their first performance, this dazzling underwater musical journey will take place again on Tuesday 20 September.
Space is limited in Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium’s Oceanarium Room, so you better hurry!
Candlelight x Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium
Venture into the depths of Australia’s oceans, and soak in the view of hundreds of marine creatures inside the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium. Add the flicker and glow of hundreds of candles, and the venue’s stunning ambience to create a magical night that you won’t forget.
You will be able to wander around the aquarium and marvel at the vast array of underwater creatures both before and after the show. If you’re feeling thirsty, there will also be drinks available from a special pop-up bar inside the aquarium.
Audiences will be treated to some of cinema’s most memorable and illustrious music. From scores that amplified the sense of mystery to scores that elevated the sense of the fantastic, the surreal and the wonder of incredible scenes, you will get to relive them all in this magical experience. Just imagine hearing the cheerful tune of The Little Mermaid’s Under the Sea, as you are quite literally surrounded by water. Or the poignant notes of the theme, Nemo Egg as you gaze at nearby fish. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
There’s a quality to string quartets that makes their performances sublime and the recitals of these famous film scores will be impressive and breath-taking thanks to the range, dynamism and timbre of the instruments.
The sounds of the two violins, one viola and cello will come to the fore when reimagining the soundtracks of films we love and deep-seated memories will emerge just as bubbles do when floating to the surface.
