Launched by Janie Dee in 2020, the London Climate Change Festival announces today specially curated concert with an all-star line up Song for Nature will be available on Stream.Theatre for a limited run ahead of the COP26 Climate Change Conference. Directed by Dominic Dromgoole, Song for Nature was conceived to to raise awareness of climate change featuring a spectacular line-up of performances. Filmed in March 2021 at the London Coliseum and originally broadcast on Earth Day 2021 on Sky Arts, Song for Nature will stream on Stream.Theatre for two nights only in the UK, Broadway and China on 28 and 29 October 2021, with tickets on sale at www.stream.theatre/home.

Directed by award-winning director and former Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe, Dominic Dromgoole, 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.

Janie Dee said today, "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."

In a celebration of the beauty of the natural world, Song for Nature features performances from some of the greats in the theatre and entertainment industry, all accompanied by the ENO Orchestra. There are also appearances from environmentalists working at the forefront of climate innovation, including award-winning journalist Stuart Ramsay; Bella Lack, Youth Ambassador for The Born Free Foundation; Natalie Fee from City to Sea and author of How to Save the World for Free; Rokiah Yaman from MadLeap; Chris Newman from NHS Green Machine; Culture Declares Emergency; Hannah Peck from Cool Earth; and climate activists Abbey Wright and John Farndon.
