The five-time Tony Award-winning production, ‘Titanic The Musical’, will play an exclusive and limited season “In Concert” this November, and starring one of Australia’s finest artists, Anthony Warlow.
Presented at the landmark Melbourne Town Hall for four performances only, this exclusive presentation will feature a 26-piece orchestra alongside a brilliant Australian cast, to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the Titanic.
Speaking of his return to Melbourne, Warlow shared his excitement over this dazzling event coming to Australian shores.
” I am thrilled to be coming back to Melbourne to perform this incredible show at the iconic Melbourne Town Hall,” said Warlow.
“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. 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.”
Based on real people aboard the most legendary ship in the world, ‘Titanic The Musical: In Concert’ is a stunning and stirring production that focuses on the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the passengers who each boarded with stories and personal ambitions of their own.
All innocently unaware of the fate awaiting them, the Third-Class immigrants’ dream of a better life in America, the Second Class imagine they too can join the lifestyles of the rich and famous, whilst the millionaire Barons of the First Class anticipate legacies lasting forever.
