Blanc de Blanc will be performed year-round on P&O Cruises’ latest ship Pacific Adventure after successful seasons at the Sydney Opera House and the Las Vegas strip.
The award-winning burlesque show, known for its Parisian glamour and high-flying aerial stunts, will be the headline act on the 3000-passenger ship when it joins P&O's Australian fleet next October.
The cast includes international and Australian acts including Blanc de Blanc’s famously attractive French host, Maître d’ Monsieur Romeo.
Internationally acclaimed Australian director Scott Maidment is the brains behind Blanc de Blanc and masterminded Love Riot -- the exclusive show on Pacific Explorer.
Brisbane-based Scott said taking Blanc de Blanc to P&O was a natural decision because of the cruise line’s passion for high energy production shows that challenged convention.
“Blanc de Blanc has been one of my most sought-after shows on land. It contains all the ingredients for a great evening out – big tunes, stunning tricks, plenty of skin and a few surprises,” Maidment said.
“It’s strictly for adults looking to enjoy a glass of champagne or two and plenty of laughter with copious amounts of effervescent energy. We know P&O guests enjoy shows that break the mould and I can’t wait to bring this show to the ship.”
P&O Cruises head of entertainment Brett Annable said the surprising and sophisticated show would be a “must-see” spectacle at the ship's new cabaret venue Black Circus.
“Pacific Adventure’s arrival provides us with another opportunity to keep shaking up traditional cruise ship entertainment and put the ‘wow’ into the world of onboard production shows,” Annable said.
“Blanc de Blanc is a world-class show typically found at a top theatre or festival, and following a hugely successful stint at the Sydney Opera House, we’re proud to be giving Australians the chance to experience this gold-class ensemble on our latest ship.”
Bookings for the maiden season of Pacific Adventure from October 2020 are available now. Fares start from $1099 per person for a twin share cabin on a 10-night Vanuatu cruise.
