TITANIC, the ‘boat of dreams', will dock at its historical home of Belfast in April as the story of the greatest vessel of its era is told in song and dance.

The Titanic tragedy has captured the hearts and imagination of people around the world since it sank on April 14 1912: the Belfast-built ship hit an iceberg, with a loss of 1,517 men, women and children on board.

Built by highly skilled Harland and Wolff shipyard workers over three years, the Titanic was viewed as the "one of the wonders of the world" at the time and was seen by families and individuals who saved up to sail on her as a way to get a new life in the New World of America.

This production of Titanic the Musical tells of the hopes and dreams of the passengers who were on the ship that fateful night when it sank on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.

It plays at the Grand Opera House, Belfast from April 24 to 28 as part of a major tour of Britain and Ireland, finishing in Dublin at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre from May 15 to 19.
