Silversea has announced a collection of new theatrical performances and entertainment concepts planned for select ships for 2020, developed in collaboration with Luna Rossa Productions. The reimagined entertainment program will launch across a selection of ships starting December 6, 2019, including onboard the Silver Moon when that ship launches August 6, 2020.
When it launches, the Silver Moon will debut To the Moon and Beyond, a retro tribute to space exploration and classic sci-fi movies. Inspired by the recent 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing, the show will incorporate space-age scenery and tunes such as Fly Me to the Moon, Moondance, Bad Moon Rising, Rocket Man and more.
Silver Moon’s headline show will be complemented by three new stage productions, which will be common to all ships:
- Circus, inspired by Cirque du Soleil and the movie The Greatest Showman
- Café Tango, a classic tango show set in a Parisian-style café
- ’80s Gold, which celebrates the decade’s pop anthems
The stage presentations will mark the debut of the Silver Stars, a new cast of singers and dancers. The Venetian Lounge will host performances of the new shows, where audiences will enjoy musical tracks, costuming and stage designs with video mapping technology and motion graphics, as well as new mobile set pieces that will provide multiple scenery changes.
New performative experiences will also be a part of the enriched entertainment program, which will launch on Silver Moon and roll out to additional ships starting in late 2020. These include LunaFest, a mid-cruise music festival staged outdoors on deck with street-food carts and Silver Sparks, a selection of entertaining moments that will pop up at unexpected times in different ship venues.
In addition to Silver Moon, Silversea’s Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit and Silver Muse will each host a new theatrical production in 2020:
Boogie Wonderland!: A ride through the music and dance moves of the disco generation with songs from Earth, Wind and Fire, Gloria Gaynor, the Bee Gees and many others. The show launches on Silver Whisper’s Caribbean voyage on December 6, 2019.
Late in the Evening: Debuting aboard Silver Wind’s January 23, 2020, Caribbean cruise roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, this acoustic, live tribute to Burt Bacharach, Carole King and Paul Simon includes reinterpretations of I Say a Little Prayer, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, Bridge over Troubled Water and more.
Colors: Launching aboard Silver Muse’s Australia and New Zealand sailing on March 3, 2020, this tribute to melodies with color and emotion presents a varied palette of tunes, from Michael Jackson’s Black or White and Madonna’s True Blue, to Barbra Streisand’s Evergreen and Prince’s Purple Rain.
Brit Hits: This nod to the success of British contemporary music will take to the stage aboard Silver Spirit’s Mediterranean cruise on April 15, 2020. Highlighting award-winning songs of the British Phonographic Industry’s annual BRIT Awards, the audience will be treated to interpretations of the best-selling hits of such artists as Adele, Amy Winehouse, Elton John, Phil Collins, Eurythmics and others.
Corazon: Set to debut aboard Silver Shadow’s Mediterranean voyage from May 3, 2020, this music and dance show mixes imagery from the Alhambra with the rhythmic sounds of Spain and South America, with styles ranging from opera to popular dance beats. The line has described the show as “Man of La Mancha meets Rhythm Is Gonna Get You.”
