GIBB The Titanic Requiem

The world premiŤre of The Titanic Requiem, the first ever classical work by one of popular musicís true living legends Robin Gibb (of The Bee Gees).

The Titanic Requiem was written and completed in time to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the catastrophic loss of life on the oceanic legend RMS Titanic. As Robin and RJ Gibb began to focus on the immensity of the Titanicís sinking, what Robin calls 'the double shock' of the shipís sinking and the inconceivable loss of life, the powerful emotions they felt almost instantly evoked strong musical ideas, themes and melodies.

Perhaps most notably for pop music fans, The Titanic Requiem's Donít Cry Alone features a lead vocal from Robin Gibb, the welcome return of one of music's truly unforgettable and distinctive voices.

Don't miss your chance to catch an astonishing night of powerful music!
