Join us to make solid connections between the world of marine science in the IMAX film "WHALES" and San Diego Opera’s upcoming "Moby-Dick."

Hosts Dr. Nicolas Reveles, the Geisel Director of Education and Outreach for SDO, and Dr. Ann Bowles, Senior Research Biologist at Hubbs-Sea World Research Institute, will share dramatic audio and visual highlights from the new opera; as well as how author Herman Melville used his own experiences on the high seas to create Captain Ahab’s obsession with his nemesis in his 19th century literary masterpiece.

Then take a dip in the ocean with giant cetaceans projected on the 76-foot fulldome screen in the IMAX® film "WHALES" ~ meet blue, orca, and sperm whales and follow humpbacks as they travel thousands of miles from the krill blooms off the frigid coast of Alaska to give birth in the warm waters of Hawaii; featuring spectacular underwater footage of Earth's largest inhabitants.
