Titanic Live announces UK tour

Experience the classic film like never before – with a full live orchestra

Upon its release in 1997, James Cameron’s Titanic broke box office records, grossing over $2 billion and winning 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Now one of the most romantic and powerful film of all time will return to the big screen for a series of performances that will also see the iconic soundtrack performed live by a full symphony orchestra, choir and Celtic musicians.

Titanic tells the story of Jack and Rose, who board the ill-fated boat as strangers but later fall in love – only to have to face their most frightening challenge when the ship strikes an iceberg and sinks. Jack’s effervescent, charismatic persona is counterbalanced by Rose’s reserved yet confident demeanour to create a relatable and charming chemistry, a romance that seemed perfect, against the odds.

The film is peppered with James Horner’s unforgettable score, the biggest-selling orchestral soundtrack of all time, which went on to win the 1998 Academy Award for Best Original Song and Dramatic Score.

Speaking about Titanic Live when it first premiered in 2015, director James Cameron said, “This experience is beyond anything I’ve seen in the theatre. When hearing the music out front and dominating, you really realise how the music drives the emotion of the movie. I felt these big surges of powerful emotion whether it was the elation of the love story or the dread, the fear. A beautiful experience.”
