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. Songs will also be performed in a variety of languages – English, Spanish and Latin, and sign language.

The show will open on Sky Princess in December 2019, followed by Enchanted Princess in June 2020 for its inaugural season in the Mediterranean.

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.

Rock Opera’s creative team includes:

  • Director and choreographer Danny Teeson, who has choreographed for a number of celebrities including Robbie Williams and Tom Jones
  • Musical arranger Nelson Kole, who has worked with Frank Sinatra, Dionne Warwick and Beyoncé.
  • Emmy Award-winning scenic designer John Lacovelli and celebrity costume designer Jackson Lowell, who has designed costumes for the likes of Elton John, Jennifer Aniston and Cate Blanchett.
