MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cinematic magic, live performers interacting with holographic scenery and actors, soaring music performed by a live symphonic orchestra -- this is not your Momma’s Romeo & Juliet.
A uniquely staged musical version of Romeo & Juliet: eternal love, blending real performers and a virtual reconstruction of renaissance Verona will debut this May 2014, with its US premiere -- introducing America to Spectacular Stage, (www.spectacularstage.com) the US subsidiary of a London-based creative company that has created cutting-edge performances throughout Europe and the Mediterranean.
Four performances at the University of Miami’s Bank United Center are on sale beginning exclusively for American Express® Card Members. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, January 22 beginning at 10 a.m. through Wednesday, February 5 at 10 p.m. through Amex/Ticketmaster. General public sales will begin soon after.
From the BBC aired Titanic Requiem, including a final holographic performance by Bee Gees’ legend Robin Gibb, to holographic performances by the late Michael Jackson to Freddie Mercury already in planning stages, executive producer Sebastian Raffa and his team intend to deliver the technical wizardry and pedigree of their sister London company, Uluru Promo. “We hope to bring an experience to audiences that they have never seen before,” says Raffa. “You know, if you name your company Spectacular Stage, you’d better bring what I believe Americans call ‘your A Game’,” he added.
Performances of several shows are already scheduled in Toronto, Montreal, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Jacksonville in 2014. Shows and dates will be announced in the coming weeks. The company will debut in South America in late 2014.
But South Florida will witness the US premiere of Spectacular Stage, with four performances of Romeo & Juliet: eternal love at the Bank United Arena on the campus of the University of Miami in Coral Gables, May 15 through 17. Visit www.Ticketmaster.com for all ticket and show information.
The company is currently scouting locations for its South Florida production facilities and will announce casting calls soon.
