Silversea Cruises is to introduce a new signature show, which features new exclusive musical tracks recorded by London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, on its five luxury cruise ships.
Themed around the world of opera, the new Grande Amore show is currently being produced for Silversea by London-based Luna Rossa Productions and will debut on Silver Whisper at the start of November 2017, before rolling out across the fleet in the following months.
Grande Amore will include music that was recorded this August in London by Royal Philharmonic musicians under the direction of renowned composer, orchestrator and arranger Richard Balcombe. Songs will be performed live by the Voices of Silversea ensemble, many of whom have performed at opera houses in Europe, or in shows on London’s West End and Broadway in the US. The production will be staged with contemporary costumes, dramatic visual effects, and a neoclassical set design evoking ancient Rome.
“This new signature show is an inspired and passionate tribute to our company’s Italian heritage, and we are honoured to once again have the collaboration of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to ensure an experience that will be emotionally uplifting and memorable for our guests,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s CEO.
