What is the repertoire onboard?


Each ship has its own collection of repertoire.


Aboard Seabourn, ‘An Evening With Sir Tim Rice’ features fleet-wide aboard. As well as production shows, there are a series of short-shows on each ship designed to be performed in The Club – as well as a Classical Sailaway designed to be performed on The Deck.

 

Other exciting collaborations include ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ aboard the Seabourn Encore, which is directed and choreographed by West End Director Gary Lloyd. The show is a whistle-stop tour of Latin and Ballroom favourites, featuring our sensational dance couple.

An Evening With Sir Tim Rice

The acclaimed lyricist of Broadway, West End and film, winner of three Oscars, three Tonys, three Golden Globes and several Grammys has given us an insight into his much-loved work, which has given pleasure to millions around the world: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat; Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita (with Andrew Lloyd Webber); Chess (with Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson of ABBA); Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast (with Alan Menken) and The Lion King (with Elton John) – to name a few. In 1994 Sir Tim was knighted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for services to music and in 2008 his star joined the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

 

Our new production, ‘An Evening With Sir Tim Rice’ is directed by Belinda King and debuted aboard Seabourn’s latest all-suite vessel, the Encore in December 2016. 2017 will see the show featured fleet wide across the Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest; as well as the Encore’s sister-ship – the Ovation – which launches in 2018.

 

The show is a concert-style performance narrated throughout by Sir Tim, taking us on a musical journey through some of his best-known work. The production features the four singers, accompanied by live musicians and state of the art visuals. Audiences in the Grand Salon aboard every ship will learn how each song came to life, as they are drawn into the mind of one of the world’s most respected and iconic songwriters; enhanced by never-before-seen photos from his private archive.

 

Sir Tim himself will make personal appearances aboard the fleet, during speciality cruises.

 

“This is a first for me, it’s been an amazing experience, looking back over my career and the friendships that shaped it,” says Sir Tim Rice. “The result is a show that you won’t find anywhere else. I’ve been lucky that my work has been shown around the world, so I love the idea of this production circumnavigating the globe on the high seas on board Seabourn’s beautiful ships.”
