LOVE: All Together Now
The Cirque/Apple Creation Partnership
|Filmed /// 2008 | Las Vegas
||Run Time (125 min)
The documentary details the story behind the unique partnership between
The Beatles and Cirque du Soleil that resulted in the creation and 2006
launch of LOVE, the stage production still playing to packed houses at The
Mirage in Las Vegas, and the experimental Beatles soundscape album of the
same name which garnered two Grammy Awards for producers Sir George and
Giles Martin. The film is dedicated to the memory of Neil Aspinall, former
CEO of Apple Corps and an Executive Producer of the DVD.
"All Together Now" faithfully recounts how the LOVE project came into being,
borne from the personal friendship between George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil
founder Guy Laliberte. George saw how the twin talents of The Beatles' music and
the artistry of Cirque du Soleil's artistry and could be fused into something
new and totally original.
