Princess Cruises has revealed details of its newest production show, ‘Rock Opera’. Created exclusively for Princess Cruises, Rock Opera will feature avant-garde inspired costumes, a musical soundtrack spanning classic rock, musical theatre and opera, as well as songs performed in a variety of languages – English, Spanish and Latin, and sign language.
The show will open on the 3,660-guest Sky Princess in December 2019, as it sails the Caribbean and will feature special guest Tenor Brian Justin Crum (America’s Got Talent: The Champions) for the ships inaugural season.
The ship will then head to Northern Europe and sail roundtrip from Copenhagen on a number of Russia and Scandinavia voyages between April and August.
Commenting, Denise Saviss, Princess Cruises’ vice president of entertainment experience, said: “Rock Opera takes our guests on a musical journey, featuring our eight-piece live orchestra playing iconic rock songs. Our production and costume design team were inspired by one of New York City’s most glamorous evenings of the year, the Met Gala.”
“Sky Princess and Enchanted Princess guests should anticipate an unforgettable evening of music that transcends language and celebrates the diversity of our crew and guests from around the world. Rock Opera features songs in English, Spanish, Latin and a Princess first – sign language.”
The show premieres aboard Sky Princess, followed by Enchanted Princess in June 2020 for its inaugural season in the Mediterranean.
