Evening entertainment

Celebrate the joy of live performance with our lineup of critically-acclaimed theatre productions that are exclusive to Cunard.

From powerful, intimate dramas to ground-breaking virtual reality, immersive theatre and West End spectacles, this new eclectic programme of entertainment is the first of its kind at sea and is brought to you from an array of award-winning theatre producers, directors, writers and actors.

These captivating performances are available on selected voyages. 


Circa has performed to over 1.5 million people across more than 40 countries and six continents with shows greeted with standing ovations, rave reviews and sold-out houses. Circa is at the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus, pioneering how extreme physicality can create powerful and moving performances. It continues to push the boundaries of the art form, blurring the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus.

Circa’s suite of new productions will be curated to suit Queen Elizabeth’s grand Royal Court Theatre, creating a bespoke experience.

Royal Shakespeare Company

RSC returns to Queen Mary 2 with an enhanced programme of both theatre productions and workshops.

There will be an offering of two matinee or evening theatre performances per 7-night voyage - Boundless as the Sea and Miss Littlewood - as well as a host of extra workshops, an enriched selection of 'Shakespeare Tales' and talks, a behind-the-scenes insight into RSC's approach and preparation for a performance and readings of Shakespeare's sonnets, film screenings and more.
