Titanic is one of the most watched films of all time, and part of that success can be attributed to its soundtrack.
The award-winning composition from James Horner is set to play centre stage at two special screenings of the movie at The Civic Theatre next year.
The 72-piece Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra will be joined by the North Shore Children's Choir for 'Titanic Live' to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the Oscar winning film.
Eric Rigler, the original pipes and whistles soloist from the film, will also take part, along with British conductor Neil Thomson.
The production has previously been performed in London, where Titanic director James Cameron attended the premiere.
"When hearing the music out front and dominating, you really realise how the music drives the emotion of the movie. I felt these big surges of powerful emotion whether it was the elation of the love story or the dread, the fear."
The event takes place in January with tickets going on sale next week.
It's unknown if Titanic director James Cameron, who is now a New Zealand resident, will attend the special screening.
