The popular National Geographic Live! series continues at Benaroya Hall with visual presentations by scientist, explorers, photographers and filmmakers.

Next up, March 9, 10 and 11, is the “The Hidden Life of Wolves,” with Jim and Jamie Dutcher, filmmakers and advocates for this misunderstood animal.

The Dutchers lived in a tented camp for six years in Idaho’s Sawtooth Wilderness where they documented the social hierarchy and behavior of the Sawtooth Pack, which led to three Emmy Award-winning documentaries and a book.

It sells out fast, so that’s the reason for the advance notice. Tickets are $17 to $38 and may be purchased on the Seattle Symphony’s website, www.seattlesymphony.org, or by calling 866-833-4747.

The rest of the National Geographic lineup includes “Stranger in a Strange Land” with photographer Jodi Cobb, March 23, 24 and 25; “Extreme Planet” with photographer Carsten Peter, April 13, 14 and 15; and “The Search for Life Beyond Earth” with astrobiologist Kevin Hand, May 4, 5 and 6.
