A childhood in East Africa gave Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Bob Poole a fierce curiosity about the natural world as well as an adventurous spirit. Now, for a new,6-part PBS/Nat Geo International series, Bob is drawing on that experience to document the rebirth of a lost Eden: Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park, a jewel ofAfrica’s parks system until civil war almost destroyed it. There, he joined forces with rangers and scientists (including his sister, renowned elephant researcher Joyce Poole), on perhaps the biggest conservation project on the planet. He’ll share secrets of filming lions, crocs, elephants, and spectacular scenery, and tell how he cracked the“Gorongosa code”—learning to read the landscape and find prime locations for filming the park’s spectacular wildlife.


Join the acclaimed cinematographer and filmmaker for unforgettable images and stories of Gorongosa’s majestic animals—and learn how the wild places we’ve
broken can be put back together.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band Gathering - the new album out 22nd September! Every ticket comes with a digital download of the new album delivered on release day. "How refreshing and inspiring it is to encounter an artist whose achievements match his ambitions." - The Washington Post "The 10 Most Exciting Artists Now” - Entertainment Weekly "100 Best Living Songwriters" - Paste Magazine Josh Ritter's acclaimed 20-year career as a songwriter and musician reaches new heights with the release of his ninth full-length album, Gathering. Along with his loyal bandmates, the Royal City Band, Josh returned to the studio with more songs than he'd ever had before at one time. Re-energized after a recent collaboration with legendary musician Bob Weir (who also contributes vocals and guitar to a song on Gathering) and --at the same time -- tired of living in the shadow of his earlier self, Josh felt charged with exploring the possibility of cutting himself loose from his own and others' expectations. In his words, "I began with an exciting sense of dissatisfaction, and what emerged, as I began to find my voice, was a record full of storms. I still can’t tell what era these stories are from. They feel part roustabout, part psalm to me." A songwriter, a musician, a New York Times best-selling author, a painter, a consummate performer. Josh Ritter encompasses all of these descriptors and more. He is a true artist. One who is not afraid of growing, changing and constantly challenging earlier versions of himself. Here, two decades into his storied career, Josh Ritter is just getting started. Gathering is out on 22nd September. http://joshritter.com http://facebook.com/joshrittermusic http://twitter.com/joshritter http://instagram/joshritterOnline fees are assessed on a per ticket basis.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
I'm With Her is Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O'Donovan. From their early contributions in bands such as Nickel Creek and Crooked Still, these three musicians are noteworthy for their recent and extensive solo career successes, including several Grammy awards. An impromptu show in 2014 at the Sheridan Opera House in Telluride, CO, sparked the formation of I'm With Her and sent the trio touring the world together the next year. Along the way, I'm With Her formed a special, family-like chemistry, garnering acclaim for their unique blend of instrumental interplay combined with their indelible harmonies, as the New York Times describes, "...that could be sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in andem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel." Their debut album, See You Around, was recorded in Bath, England, with Ethan Johns at Real World Studios and will be released in February, 2018.

Every paid ticket will be bundled with a downloadable album.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
National Geographic Live! is a four-part speaker series that showcases the world through the eyes of great explorers, filmmakers, and photographers. The Fitzgerald Theater program will expose rarely seen perspectives on exploration through the often-daring experiences of National Geographic personalities.“No expedition, adventure, or film comes about without a little bit of suffering. But the suffering co-efficient is my key to success.”—Bryan Smith


Have you ever watched a National Geographic film about some incredibly remote, dangerous place—and then wondered what the people behind the cameras experienced to capture the action? Join Bryan Smith, an award-winning filmmaker for the Nat Geo Channel, as he shares gripping moments from his assignments to document extreme feats and high adventure in the world’s most challenging environments.


An experienced kayaker who had paddled steep rivers in India, Peru, and Russia, Smith was inspired to take up video photography while protesting a hydroelectric dam project that threatened British Columbian rivers. He quickly developed a knack for creating innovative technical solutions to capture dizzying images—inevitably putting himself and his team at risk to get the shot.


Currently, Smith is traveling the world in search of the world’s monster fish for the popular Nat Geo WILD series Hooked.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
National Geographic Live! is a four-part speaker series that showcases the world through the eyes of great explorers, filmmakers, and photographers. The Fitzgerald Theater program will expose rarely seen perspectives on exploration through the often-daring experiences of National Geographic personalities.Photojournalist Cristina Mittermeier knows the power of water: the power to give life when it is respected, and the power to destroy when it is misused. During her time with the Kayapó people in the Amazon, she documented a society that relied on their local waterway to survive—and found their way of life threatened by a massive new dam. In British Columbia, she found First Nations protecting their sacred headwaters, and in Hawaii, a new community of indigenous peoples seeking to reclaim their connection to the sea. She learned that one concept bound these three disparate communities together: “Enoughness,” or taking only that which you need.
