Quantum Theatricals Creates “Light and Music Ballet” on Queen Mary 2

The iconic Cunard Line was looking for a way to celebrate the 175th anniversary of its first transatlantic crossing, when Kelly Easterling approached the company with an idea that was outside the box — or perhaps more aptly outside the ship! Easterling, the creative director and principal designer at Quantum Theatricals, proposed creating a dynamic lightshow set to music off the side of the 1,132’ Queen Mary 2, the company’s flagship ocean liner. Much to the delight of the massive crowd in New York harbor on July 14, this is precisely what he and his dedicated team wound up doing with help from 50 intensely bright Legend 230SR Beams from CHAUVET Professional.

Cunard Lines celebrated its 175th anniversary in style, with a commemorative Transatlantic Crossing of the Queen Mary 2 from Liverpool to New York. A light and music show, designed by Quantum Theatricals, lit the New York Harbor skyline on July 14. Quantum Theatricals installed 50 moving light fixtures along the ships promenade deck to illuminate the harbor. Quantum Theatricals collaborated with US and Canadian Customs, Federal Aviation Administration, the City of New York, US Coast Guard, and the New York Harbormaster to establish all the appropriate safety measures surrounding the event. Click through the images to read more and watch the show in the video below.

On the evening of July, 14, 2015, the QM2 was at the center of a spectacular lightshow in New York Harbor witnessed by PLSN from the very tip of Manhattan island, Battery Park. The lightshow marked the 175th anniversary of the Cunard’s first transatlantic crossing by its one-time flagship, the Britannia. New York City area-based live event production and design firm Quantum Theatricals, tasked with producing the event, proposed the idea of the QM2 sailing into lower Manhattan.

This month marks the 175th Anniversary of Cunard, and Queen Mary 2 has recreated the historic Transatlantic Crossing from Liverpool to Halifax and Boston made by the RMS Britannia in July 1840. Although not a port of call in the original crossing made by Britannia, New York has been Cunard's North American home port for over a century. (Diane Bondareff/AP Images for Cunard)
