“Titanic Live”: Colliding with Icebergs in Sofia

Written by on October 19, 2016 in Culture, Leisure - No comments


Those three hours and eight minutes of film have impressed most of us. Yes, that was in 1997. James Cameron did not only direct the epic flick, he also squeezed himself into a tiny submarine, in order to film the wreck of the “RMS Titanic”. The outcome was nothing less than sensational. But that wasn’t all Cameron did. He also co-wrote the script and co-produced the whole thing. He probably delivered all the pizzas for the film crew too.

What in the hell would all of this have to do with Bulgaria? A lot. That is because “Titanic Live” will be hitting the Iceberg right here in Sofia, on April 8th, 2017. On that day, the movie will be screened at hall no. 1 of the National Palace of Culture. The score will be performed live, by a 100-piece orchestra and a 30-piece boy’s choir. Yes, you already did the math. A total of 130 musicians will be present in the orchestra area. And their performance will be impressive.

It is a huge production in two parts, with an intermission in between, after exactly one hour and 44 minutes. The producers are promising a “terrific audiovisual experience”. And yes, the movie will be shown in English, with Bulgarian subtitles. The only place where the move will be shown in a different language is Germany, since the Germans are so great at foreign languages, which is why their dubbing specialists have developed a lot of skills.

Tickets for This special event in Sofia are already on sale. The price range: 60 to 110 Leva.

No, this is no “4D” performance. So, they will not be throwing chunks of ice through the hall.
