The Beatles Love
Cirque du Soleil
The Fab4 Love by Cirque du Soleil

Beatles... Love Beatles compilation conceived by the Fabs' former producer George Martin
and son Giles as a stageshow soundtrack to Cirque de Soleil's Las Vegas spectacular of the same name
album cover of The Beatles:

Love It begins with a twittering
of birdsong lifted from "Across the Universe."
And once the triple-tracked a
capella harmonies of "Because" enter, followed by snatches from "A Hard Day's Night" and "The End," leading into a fired-up "Get Back,"
it becomes obvious that this is far more than just another Beatles compilation.

The white VW Beetle from the cover of 'Abbey Road' is a key part of the show.

An ambitious blend of Beatles biography and lyrical interpretation shapes Cirque du Soleil's latest Las Vegas extravaganza, a mostly graceful and elegant marriage of movement and song that reinforces the greatness of the music created by the Beatles in the 1960s.

An imaginatively assembled score of oft-altered Beatles recordings gives this Cirque project an element the company's shows have never enjoyed:

Truly great music used in a context that challenges not only the creators and performers, but the listeners as well.
"Love" limns Beatles music as no production, be it for stage or film, has ever done before.

Everything about "Love" is done in service to the Beatles; there's not a single moment in which a visual element overrides the audio.

It's Cirque trying to find a new pace that responds to the music, meaning measured movements on ropes in one scene, zippy skateboarders in another. The rope climbers and bungee jumpers seen in Cirque shows are present; the balancing acts, clowns and aerial daredevils are not.

The star is the Beatles, and the point is driven home when superbly edited footage of the Fab Four is shown during the closer, "All You Need Is Love".
