Baby Doll

Beethoven / YOM

Event Slider

The French art and stage director Marie-Eve Signeyrole, who in 2017 presented the memorable production The Monster in the Labyrinth at Gulbenkian Music, has now created a new transdisciplinary show of enormous artistic breadth, based on Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. Baby Doll is an intense musical and choreographic experience that brings together Beethoven’s music, interpreted by the Gulbenkian Orchestra, with compositions by the clarinettist and composer Yom. A documentary fiction based on real stories concerning our modern-day migration crisis unravels on stage. This work brings current affairs to the centre of its musical discourse, thereby not fleeing from the problems occupying centre stage in the world.
