P&O Debuts Exclusive 'Twice Upon A Time' Show On Pacific Eden

Posted November 23rd, 2015

P&O's latest dance show spectacular Twice Upon A Time debuted on Pacific Eden last night to a packed house receiving rapturous applause and feedback.

In conjunction with Grayboy Entertainment, the dark and original lyrical piece dramatically takes a journey through a post-apocalyptic world to a time of re-generation and splendour.

The contemporary dance style captures the tension and glory of the tale, delivering an emotional masterpiece.


Evolved over two years and come to fruition through extensive collaboration with choreographer Dale Pope and music director Phillip Filo, Entertainment Director for P&O Australia Brett Annable was initially unsure the original idea and concept would make it past P&O management.

"It's a very different show that transports the audience back to a dark, post-apocalyptic time. We worked closely with Grayboy Entertainment in Sydney and our talented choreographers and music directors to bring an exciting lyrical dance piece and we're thrilled to have the show debut on our newest ships in the fleet, Pacific Eden and Pacific Aria."

One of four new shows debuting on P&O, the spectacle uses stage-wide screens at the rear with two large panel screens flanking the stage either side to deliver an enhanced digital experience to the audience.
