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 and a musical soundtrack spanning classic rock, musical theatre and opera. The songs will be performed in a variety of languages – English, Spanish, Latin, and sign language.
Which ships will feature Rock Opera?
The show will open on Sky Princess in December 2019, as it sails the Caribbean. It will feature special guest Tenor Brian Justin Crum (America’s Got Talent: The Champions) for the ship’s inaugural season.
“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.”Denise Saviss, Princess Cruises’ vice president of entertainment experience
The show premieres aboard Sky Princess, followed by Enchanted Princess in June 2020 for its inaugural season in the Mediterranean.
