The production was an opportunity to get over 200 musicians, dancers, production crew and more back together and doing what they love most following a very challenging 2020.
“Every December I perform a Christmas concert at the Royal Albert Hall; it is one of the highlights of my year. Sadly, this year arts venues around the globe are facing challenges and traditional Christmas concerts and carol services are under threat. After the 20 concerts I gave from home during lockdown, I realised how music can bring people together so rather than leave audiences without, we took the challenge head on and made a fully-fledged feature film using the spaces of the Royal Albert Hall and camera and story-telling techniques in ways never done before,” says Jenkins. “My Family, friends and I hope to bring comfort and Christmas cheer to other families and audiences around the world – whether they are together or apart. I really don’t think we left anything out – we even have the Sugar Plum Fairy!”
Katherine Jenkins: Christmas Spectacular was directed and choreographed by Lynne Page (Judy, The Crown), camera direction by Marcus Viner (Pet Shop Boys: Live In Hyde Park) andalso features Grammy and Olivier Award-winning conductor Steve Sidwell.
Katherine Jenkins: Christmas Spectacular from the Royal Albert Hall is available on Apple TV worldwide NOW.
