Princess Cruises has revealed its third production in collaboration with Oscar, Tony, and Grammy award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell), named The Secret Silk. Created and directed by Tony Award-nominated John Tartaglia (Avenue Q, Sesame Street) with original life-size puppetry from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, The Secret Silk will debut exclusively onboard Royal Princess from mid-February in the Caribbean.

Inspired by an ancient Asian tale of adventure and romance, the production brings together some of Broadway’s best talent. The show follows Lan, a beautiful, selfless young woman who possesses a magical gift, secretly creating brilliant silk fabrics. Audiences will be treated to a visual feast of music, dance and puppetry and original song, Sing to the Sky, created exclusively for the show.

“Australian and New Zealand guests will be spoilt for choice when selecting fly-cruise itineraries to the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe and Japan where they can enjoy the latest production from Princess’ exclusive partnership with legendary composer Stephen Schwartz,” said Senior Vice President Princess Cruises Asia Pacific, Stuart Allison.

“Following the premiere aboard Royal Princess this month, The Secret Silk will next debut on Island Princess in May timed with our Alaska season, before featuring on Diamond Princess’ Japan season in September. Locally, guests can continue to enjoy Stephen Schwartz’s Broadway inspired, Born to Dance onboard Golden Princess.”

The new production also comes with bespoke artwork fashioned by Katie Rodgers of @PaperFashion Instagram fame, to reflect the whimsical nature of the show.

Fares for a 7 night Alaska cruise from Vancouver on Island Princess departing on Wednesday, May 16 2018 start from $1309 AUD per person twin share*. For more information, see a licensed travel agent; call 13 24 88 or visit www.princess.com.au  *subject to availability, conditions apply.
