Feature-Length Documentary Chronicles The Making Of The Beatles' 'LOVE' by Cirque du Soleil LONDON, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 24, 2008 Apple CorpsLtd./Cirque du Soleil will release the feature-length documentary 'AllTogether Now' on DVD, which will be marketed and distributed worldwide byEMI Music. The film details the story behind the unique partnership betweenThe Beatles and Cirque du Soleil that resulted in the creation and launchof "LOVE," the stage production still wowing audiences at The Mirage in LasVegas, and the double Grammy-winning album of the same name. The film isdedicated to the memory of Neil Aspinall, an Executive Producer of the DVD. (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20080416/LAW067) The DVD's total running time is 122 minutes, including the 84-minutedocumentary film and bonus features. The film and extras are presented inDTS & Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and Dolby Digital Stereo. 'All Together Now' faithfully recounts how the "LOVE" project came intobeing, borne from the personal friendship between George Harrison andCirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte. George saw how the twin talents ofCirque's artistry and The Beatles' music could be fused into something newand totally original. The director, Adrian Wills, records early meetings between the Cirque &Apple Corps Ltd. creative teams, as well as contributions from Sir PaulMcCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison discussing howThe Beatles' music can be used in a different way. We hear about thedecision to utilize the combined talents of Sir George Martin and his sonGiles Martin to produce what became a 90-minute soundscape created from TheBeatles' multi-track recordings and how this new audio adventure was beingquietly worked on in the famous Abbey Road Studios in London, Englandwhilst the first creative ideas for the show were being formulated inMontreal, Canada. These early stages of the project were all filmed, as were the firstrehearsals at the Mirage Hotel theatre in Las Vegas, which was completelyrebuilt with a one-of-a-kind sound system and complex round staging tohouse the "LOVE" show. George and Giles Martin, the show's MusicalDirectors, were involved every step of the way with the remarkable Cirquedu Soleil creative team, performers and backroom staff. It wasn't all "plain-sailing" and there has been no attempt to disguisesome of the disagreements that took place along the way regarding how someof the songs would be portrayed visually. These creative differences, anecessary part of the overall process of bringing "LOVE" to its mostvibrant life, illustrate the participants' love and respect for the musicand vision of The Beatles. In addition to their roles within the main feature, George and GilesMartin, along with engineer Paul Hicks, also pop up in another piece titled"Changing The Music" which reveals in fascinating depth how the music wascreated and the challenges they faced. They explain how they sourced someof the individual instruments and effects and how they were encouraged toexperiment. The 'All Together Now' documentary and bonus features provide afascinating insight into the creative skills and passion that went intomaking this project a groundbreaking critical and commercial success.
