Los Angeles, California – January 31, 2010 – At today’s 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards, ‘All Together Now,’ the feature-length documentary about the making of The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil® won the GRAMMY for Best Long Form Music Video (Adrian Wills, director; Martin Bolduc and Jonathan Clyde, producers).
’All Together Now’ details the story behind the unique partnership between The Beatles and Cirque du Soleil that resulted in the creation and 2006 launch of LOVE at The Mirage in Las Vegas. Available on DVD, the film also documents the creation of the show’s music, the experimental Beatles soundscape album of the same name, which garnered two GRAMMY Awards for its producers, Sir George Martin and Giles Martin, in the categories of Compilation Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television or other Visual Medium and Surround Sound Album.
LOVE, a Cirque du Soleil creation and co-production with The Beatles’ company, Apple Corps Ltd., celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles and is presented exclusively at The Mirage in Las Vegas. This joint artistic venture marks the first time that Apple Corps Ltd. has agreed to a major theatrical partnership. The project was born out of a personal friendship and mutual admiration between the late George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté.
LOVE opened to rave reviews on June 30, 2006 and has played to more than 1.6 million audience members.
