Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular, based on award-winning BBC Television Series, returns to Latvia this autumn. Having been watched by more than 9 million people all over the world, the production will visit Arena Riga on 1st-2nd October. The ticket sales start on Friday, 9th of March at Bilesu Serviss.

Dinosaurs will once again roam international soil when the globally-acclaimed production, Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular, returns in 2018. Watched by over 9 million people in more than 250 cities around the world, Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular, will open its World Tour in the UK in July and then will embark on an international tour, taking over arenas across Europe, including Latvia. The $20 million production features updated, state of the art technology, underlining its position as the biggest and best dinosaur show in the world.

This updated production will showcase spectacular and colourful changes to the dinosaurs based on the latest scientific research including the likely feathering of some species. Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular is produced by Global Creatures. The one-hour, 40 minute show depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution with almost cinematic realism. Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.

Nine species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs. The show includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period and Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the Cretaceous period. The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus, is 11 meters tall and 17 meters from nose to tail. It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists, painters, and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.

The history of the world is played out with the splitting of the earth’s continents, and the transition from the arid desert of the Triassic period is given over to the lush green prairies and forces of the later Jurassic. Oceans form, volcanoes erupt, a forest catches fire – all leading to the impact of the massive comet, which struck the earth, and forced the extinction of the dinosaurs.

The show originated from Australia, where after years of planning and work Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular came to life in January 2007. Soon after this the show went on to conquer the whole world with record-breaking audiences. Walking with Dinosaurs visited also Latvia nine years ago in 2009 during its world tour, due to unprecented demand, all the performances in Riga Arena were sold out.
