“The Launching” – Titanic

Music and Lyrics: Maury Yeston

“The Launching” is actually a series of numbers that cover the titular ship’s loading, boarding, and embarkation in this musical about the infamous British ocean liner which began its maiden voyage on this day in 1912.  Hopes and dreams coalesce as the chorus of staff and passengers prepare for their journey not knowing the terrible fate that lies ahead.  It’s a glorious opening that will resonate with you long after, just as the story of Titanic has resonated throughout history.
