Persephone: A unique retelling of Greek mythology

In ancient Greek mythology and religion, Persephone is the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. She became the queen of the underworld after her abduction by and marriage to her uncle Hades, the king of the underworld.  This original retelling concept comes from the House of Yes exclusively for Virgin Voyages latest ships.

Unique Theater Experience

“Persephone” offers multiple viewpoints, making each visit a unique experience. There is no seating for this show in the Red Room except for on Deck 7 and you can move around the room to get the best angles of all of the action going on the center stage, climbing up the walls and all around you within the audience.

The Ultimate Mix

“Persephone” combines everything Virgin has learnt to create the ultimate mix of acrobatics, singing, dancing and much more that has to be seen. Highlights include a stunning solo number from the lead herself Persephone and a glitter ball dance sequence that reflects throughout the Red Room.
