A modern musical masterpiece about a tragedy that launched a legend.
RMS Titanic, probably the most famous ship in history, collided with an iceberg on her maiden voyage in 1912 and the vessel known as the unsinkable went to the ocean floor.
With characters based on the real victims and survivors of the disaster, Titanic the Musical is a stunning and stirring production focusing on the hopes, dreams and aspirations of her passengers and crew.
Titanic captures stories from the whole range of humanity aboard the ship: from workers in the boiler room to first-class stewards, from the poorest passengers on third-class tickets to some of the wealthiest men and women of the age.
The show scooped 5 Tony awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. Its epic story is told through epic music, inspired by British composers such as Elgar and Vaughan Williams.
Moving seamlessly from the wonder of the largest man-made moving object of her day to the horror of the shipwreck, composer Maury Yeston and writer Peter Stone retell the tragic events with a compassionate book, intelligent lyrics, and soaring melodies.
