"Titanic Tales features firsthand accounts of survivors with some of the music played by the ship's musicians that night."
- The New Yorker
Follow the survivors of the Titanic's tragic maiden voyage through the highs and lows of that fateful night 100 years ago. Titanic Tales is part theatre, part concert, part history. Poignant firsthand accounts illustrate how great danger can bring out the best - and sometimes the worst- in people. The focus is firmly on the survivors and the difficult choices they made at moments of extreme crisis
The remarkable and authentic testimony of the survivors is evocatively complemented by live music as played by the ship's legendary band. A blend of popular song, light classics and ragtime conjures the atmosphere and elegance of life aboard the ship, culminating in an uplifting sense of hope and possibility.
The show had its world premiere, to coincide with the centenary of the Titanic's voyage on Thursday April 12, 2012 at the David Rubenstein Atrium, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, New York City. It was a special commission by Lincoln Center. Titanic Tales played to a packed house-there was a line outside down the block, and many people were turned away - and the performance received a standing ovation from the rapturous audience.
