An exciting new musical featuring a talented cast of Irish musicians and more.
We can't think of a single ship that is more famous and talked about than the legendary Titanic. The oceanic vessel has been the protagonist of one of history's most popularized shipwrecks back in 1912, and the story of the boat that didn't manage to make it across the Atlantic ocean before crashing into a floating iceberg acquired major popularity with the modern crowd thanks to the popular "Titanic" feature film by direct James Cameron (also known for blockbuster films such as Avatar, The Terminator or Aliens).
If there is something that captures an audience even more than the energy of a great film, is probably the humanity of a stellar live performance.
Now, the famous story of the ocean liner is also a musical that hosts the talent of some of Ireland's best folk musicians and dancers, making for a dazzling show of sounds, stories, light and magic. As many of the passengers of the Titanic were Irish, folk music is a great way to tell the story of the many souls who lost their lives on their way to the new world. These people were hoping to find a better life for themselves, perhaps starting families of their own or supporting loved ones by working from the land of opportunities and sending money home. However, Titanic Dance is not the story of tragic loss of life: it is a joyful celebration that will charm, dazzle and entertain audiences of all walks of life.
The CD, Music from the Show, is a wonderful collection of Irish music perfectly played and a tribute to the success of the show. Expect to hear some lovely Irish traditional dance music, beautiful vocals and flutes to bring this CD alive in the memory of Titanic. If you appreciate shows like “Riverdance” or “Lord the Dance” then chances are you are going to find “Titanic Dance” irresistibly entertaining!
Find out more and learn about this unique performance. Stay tuned, because this time around, the most famous ship in the history of seafaring might finally make the jump over the pond after all: Titanic Dance is currently looking to arrange American performances to reach out to a whole new crowd!
