Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book
Majestically depicted, this epic story of grandeur captures the essence of lives lost and memories everlasting.
This stunning chamber musical tells the stories of the people on board and the men and women who determined their fate. In the final hour of April 14th, 1912 the RMS Titanic, on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York, collided with an iceberg and ‘the unsinkable ship’ slowly sank. It was one of the most tragic events of the 20th Century. 1517 men, women and children lost their lives.
The London Chamber Revival production will have its Australian premiere from Thursday 7 July to Sunday 24 July 2016 at Chapel off Chapel.
Based on actual characters, this hauntingly beautiful musical focuses on their hopes and aspirations. Unaware of the fate that awaits them, the third class immigrants dream of a better life in America, the newly liberated second class aspire to attain a more grand lifestyle of the rich and famous, while the millionaire aristocrats of the first class believe their wealth and power will last forever.
