Cruises has launched its latest production show entitled ‘Kingdom of Kung Fu' onboard
its cruise ship SuperStar Virgo.
‘Kingdom of Kung Fu’ is an all new show that features a stunning combination of martial arts, dance,
acrobatics and gymnastics. Produced entirely by the Star Cruises entertainment team, the spectacular
US$ 1 million production brings together a multi-award winning international cast of 30 talented artistes
from Europe, South America and Asia.
The shows will be staged at the
934 seat Lido show lounge, equipped with state-of-the-art light, sound and stage features.
"The introduction of new and spectacular shows like ‘Kingdom of Kung Fu’ is part of the ongoing efforts
by Star Cruises to enhance the varied choices of entertainment and activities that are available onboard
our ships to provide our guests with a truly world class cruise experience," said Mr. Chong Chee Tut, Star
Cruises’ Chief Operating Officer.
‘Kingdom of Kung Fu’ showcases the power and action of the Shaolin Masters, combined with the
grace and fluidity of dance and the precision and strength of gymnastics and acrobatics. It reflects a
fusion of cultures which sees good triumphing over evil in cleverly choreographed sequences
complemented with dramatic sound, lights, special effects, stage props and backdrops.
“This is the second time that Star Cruises has embarked on producing a show of such magnitude
following 'Sorpresa' which was a great success. It is also a first for the
Shaolin Masters to be featured onboard a ship," said Mr. Looi Ban Cheng, Star Cruises’ Vice President for Entertainment.
The new show season
began yesterday, 13 November 2005, on SuperStar Virgo's 3-night cruises to Penang
