This coming November, Silversea Cruises will premiere its newest signature production show on the stages of its five ocean ships. The show, titled Grand Amore, is themed around the world of opera, and will celebrate love and beauty with traditional opera, classical crossover and popular selections, with a score recorded by London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, exclusively for the Silversea production.
The show’s songs will be performed live by the Voices of Silversea ensemble, many of whom are vocalists with experience in the opera houses of Europe, as well as from shows in London’s West End and Broadway. The production will be staged with contemporary costuming, dramatic visual effects and a neoclassical set design evocative of ancient Rome.
London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is set to record the musical tracks in late August to early September. The Royal Philharmonic musicians will perform under the direction of renowned composer, orchestrator and arranger Richard Balcombe, who also directed the orchestra’s performance for the recorded music that accompanied Silversea’s Musica Maestro show, which was launched in 2014.
"This new signature show is an inspired and passionate tribute to our company's Italian heritage, and we are honored 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.
The Grande Amore show is being produced by London-based Luna Rossa Productions. It will debut on Silver Whisper’s “Caribbean and Central America” voyage, which will travel from New York to Barbados, departing November 2, 2017. The show will then roll out fleetwide in the months following this voyage.
