Young girls like Barbies. Older people like classical music. That's about right isn't it?
Why, you may ask then, are classical big hitters like Beethoven being mentioned in the same sentence as the famous plastic one (not Sharon Osbourne)?
Well, in an intriguing move, Barbie At The Symphony aims to introduce a whole new generation to the delights of classical music. Barbie and the conductor interact and talk to the audience to actively engage them with the performance by encouraging them to understand thestories and expression behind the music, for example, how a drum beatcan represent thunder or create tension.
An animated classical musical experience, at the Phil next week, will feature Barbie singing and dancing to some of the world's best loved musical scores and will also feature six of the best selling Barbie 'Princess' movies. To prevent potential upset, we must warn you that Barbie will not be performing her number 1 smash, 'Barbie Girl'. She will however give Dvorak's Symphony a whirl.
On top of all the wonderful film and music, Barbie will be making a special appearance to meet her fans and will be signing autographs and posing for photos (what?).
