Cruise holiday passengers aboard Cunard Line's flagship vessel the Queen Mary 2 will be treated to an operatic extravaganza this summer with plans taking place to screen Madame Bufferfly 3D onboard.
The screenings are being organised in association with the London Royal Opera House and RealD – the most widely used digital 3D projection technology in the world.
Recorded during live performances last year, the film will be screened from July 6th and with the Cunard vessel currently the only cruise ship planning to present the film.
The screening is the latest joint venture between Cunard and RealD. Last year, Carmen in 3D was screened to guests aboard the cruise vessels, with Madame Butterfly 3D expected to draw similar crowds to the Queen Mary 2's 450-seat theatre, Illuminations.
"There are few British institutions more respected and admired in the world than the Royal Opera and Cunard," says Joseph Peixoto, president of worldwide cinema at RealD.
"To bring this world-class production to Queen Mary 2 ensures it will be seen on cruises throughout the world."
