The ‘Le Grand Bleu / The Big Blue’ concert tour kicks off on Wednesday, September 14, in Nantes, France, where the film will be screened, while Eric Serra and his musicians perform the soundtrack live.
This tour, which was scheduled to start in April 2022 and was postponed (read more), is now back on the road. Eric Serra and his team are currently rehearsing in Paris, and here is a short video of these sessions:
The dates of the movie-concerts are as follows:
On May 11, 1988, Luc Besson’s ‘Le Grand Bleu / The Big Blue’ was released in theaters, with a soundtrack composed by Eric Serra. To celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary, two exceptional performances took place at La Seine Musicale in 2018 (sold out).
In this show, Eric Serra and his musicians invite us to rediscover this essential work of French cinema, which they interpret on stage identically to the projection of the film, for an exceptional immersive experience.
On the soundtrack, using simple electronic sound boxes, Eric Serra manages to transcribe the atmosphere of the abyssal depths into music, with synthetic sounds that are reminiscent of whale song and create a sense of well-being.
- Bass, vocals and musical direction: Eric Serra
