The five-time Tony Award-winning production, Titanic The Musical, is coming to Melbourne for a special concert series. Based on real people aboard the Titanic, this production focuses on the hopes, dreams and ambitions of the ill-fated passengers. Titanic The Musical: In Concert will feature a 26-piece orchestra, alongside a stellar Australian cast. See it at Melbourne Town Hall for four performances, on November 4, 5 and 6.
Titanic The Musical: In Concert
This concert celebrates the 110th anniversary of the historic event. On the Titanic’s maiden voyage in 1912, Third Class immigrants dreamed of a better life in America. Passengers in the Second Class imagined joining the lifestyles of the rich and famous, and the millionaires in First Class believed their legacies will last forever. However, when the ship collides with an iceberg and sinks, these dreams are cut short.
Titanic The Musical: In Concert features an all-Australian creative team, including Theresa Borg as Director and Stephan Gray as Musical Director. Musical theatre star Anthony Warlow leads the cast as Captain Edward Smith.
“I was drawn to this show mainly because of the extraordinary score and the fact that this Concert version will allow audiences to experience the music in all its splendour with a lavish and sumptuous 26-piece orchestra,” said Warlow. “I am truly looking forward to being on that stage and to collectively feel the power of music alongside my fellow performers and our audiences.”
The production features music and lyrics by Maury Yeston (Nine) and a book by Peter Stone (Woman of the Year and 1776). The pair have collectively won an Academy Award, an Emmy Award, an Olivier Award and three Tony Awards. Meanwhile, the original Broadway production of Titanic The Musical won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
Tickets for the performances will go on sale on Thursday July 28 at 9am.
