Beatles for babies (a tribute concert to the Beatles)

A show-concert for the youngest with a journey though the most emblematic pieces by The Beatles, and an interactive staging in which the kids help make this show possible.

A dancer and four experienced musicians (violin, clarinet, cello and percussion) perform sophisticated arrangements in a respectful vibe and a non-childish language.

Babies can move freely around the stage interacting with the performers.

Beatles for babies has been the first production aimed for babies and toddlers to perform at Teatre Nacional de Catalunya ever. The answer of the audience was incredible: 21 Beatles for babies performances were sold out before the premiere. That was the first time ever to happen at Teatre Nacional in almost 20 years history.
