Titanic (Ensemble Version)
Although the same show as the larger orchestration, this version has been pared down to 20 actors all of whom play multiple roles throughout the show.
The reduced orchestration is based on the Original 1997 Broadway Production.
This version is orchestrated to be player conducted from the keyboard and does have programming.
Keyboard 1 is the primary piano book in this orchestration but does have several additional patches throughout the show including harp, strings, harpsichord, xylophone, vibes, glock, and celeste. There is a Piano/Vocal score that is designed for the rehearsal process but the book that is used in performances is a Piano/Conductor score that has each instruments part written out with anywhere from 8-12 measures per page with small-ish print.
April 10, 1912: the RMS Titanic sets out from London on her maiden voyage, across the Atlantic. Billed as “The Largest Floating Object in The World,” the Titanic is already big news. April 15, 1912: Titanic, the “unsinkable” ship, sinks, killing over 1500 men, women and children. In a stunning chamber musical as massive as the ocean liner that shares its name, Yeston and Peter Stone’s musical, Titanic, tells the stories of the people on board the legendary steamer and the men who got them there. Spanning all classes, Titanic captures the stories from the whole range of humanity aboard the ship: from workers in the boiler room to first-class attendants, from the poorest passengers, who scraped together their life savings to purchase third-class tickets to America, to some of the wealthiest men of the Victorian age, including John Jacob Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim. Maury Yeston and Peter Stone’s musical tells the tragic story with a compassionate book, intelligent lyrics, and soaring melodies. Full of memorable characters based on the real men and women on the ship, Titanic is a powerful, complex look at the making of a tragedy.
