For the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the world's most famous ship, author Hugh Brewster presents a dramatic, multi-media adaptation of his bestselling new book, RMS Titanic: Gilded Lives on a Fatal Voyage. Two of Canada's most distinguished actors, Christopher Newton and Brigitte Robinson of the Shaw Festival, will assist in telling the story of the fatal maiden voyage and the people who sailed on her. Photographs, rare footage and film clips evoke the splendor and the horror of her fatal last night. The Elora Festival Singers under Noel Edison will hauntingly recreate the music of the Titanic, assisted by a string ensemble reminiscent of the ship's orchestra, and a bagpiper playing the Irish tunes of the lower decks.
