2011 - 2012


She has been called the most famous ship since Noah's Ark...the largest, fastest, most luxurious trans-Atlantic liner of her time...the "unsinkable" ship who, just four days into her maiden voyage, struck an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. on Sunday, April 14, 1912.  Two hours and forty minutes later the "ship of dreams" was gone, taking over 1,500 souls with her into the freezing depths of the North Atlantic.  She is the RMS Titanic, and Orpheus is honoured to mark her 100th anniversary with this exquisite production.

This is not a musical version of the James Cameron movie.  Based on real people and events and over ten years in creation, Titanic - The Musical was launched on April 23, 1997, at Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, where it ran for 830 performances and won many accolades - including five Tony Awards - along the way.  Since then, it has been performed throughout North America, the UK and Australia and has been translated for successful productions across Europe and in Japan.

Bringing this now-legendary story to the Orpheus stage has been artistically and technically challenging and has required a huge commitment of time, energy and creativity from everyone involved.  With its elements of privilege and poverty, of courage and cowardice, of great achievement and catastrophic failure, it is a real-life story that, even a century later, far surpasses any screen or script-writer's imagination.
