A NEW DAY... presented by Chrysler transports the audience to a unique theatrical world; each song evokes a different visual experience. A NEW DAY... presented by Chrysler features the largest indoor LED screen in North America. Dragone uses the screen to evoke the mood within the music and create an environment that transcends the usual physical limitations of theatrical productions. With lighting, projected images, traditional props and remarkably sharp three-dimensional screen graphics, the set for A NEW DAY... presented by Chrysler places Céline, the performers and, indeed, the audience in European town squares, great city centers, picturesque antique temples and starry sky-scapes. An extraordinary illusion of depth is created; the 4,000-seat Colosseum ends up feeling less like a traditional theatre than like an immense public space. A NEW DAY... presented by Chrysler is theatre of life.
Céline is joined by a cast of fifty-eight performers, musicians and vocalists. The artists have not only worked at perfecting stunning choreographies, but have mastered the challenges of physical and aerial training and percussion and vocal sessions through intensive workshops in Belgium and Las Vegas. The elite international cast was selected from among thousands at auditions in Montreal, London, Paris, Amsterdam, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago and La Louvière, Belgium.
The musicians - most of whom have been touring with Céline for nearly a decade - include background vocalists, an accordionist, a flutist, cellists, a drummer, a percussionist, a pianist and guitarists. Céline’s longtime bandleader, Claude “Mégo” Lemay, plays keyboards. The music ranges from classic Céline to beautifully-arranged standards to her latest hits. To date, Céline has sold over 155 million albums worldwide, making her the biggest selling female artist of all time.
