James Horner’s epic score is performed live to the blockbuster film Titanic (1997), winner of 11 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Song and Dramatic Score.
Titanic tells the story of a seventeen-year-old aristocrat, expecting to be married to a rich claimant by her mother, who falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious but ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.
Upon its original release, Titanic was celebrated for transporting audiences back in time, right into the belly of the R.M.S Titanic in all her glory and into the heart of a forbidden love affair entwined with the ship’s epic collision with human arrogance, nature and fate. 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the theatrical release of one of the world’s most breath-taking love stories and most successful films ever made.
The live-in-concert version premiered at the Royal Albert Hall, London, has since been performed to great acclaim across the world.

“I’m just overwhelmed by the reaction tonight. People were so into it. It was wondrous”James Horner, Titanic Live premiere, April 2015
“This experience is beyond anything I’ve seen in the theatre. When hearing the music out front and dominating, you really realise how the music drives the emotion of the movie. I felt these big surges of powerful emotion whether it was the elation of the love story or the dread, the fear. A beautiful experience”James Cameron, Titanic Live premiere, April 2015
