‘Barbie’ At The Bowl: All-Female Orchestra To Play Along With Film’s Score At Storied Hollywood Venue

Barbie is going Hollywood. Again.

Mattel revealed today that the live-to-film concert experience Barbie The Movie: In Concert will hit the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, July 27 — a year to the week after the pic’s release. The show will bring 2023’s biggest movie to life with live music from The Barbie Land Sinfonietta, a special presentation from executive producer and orchestrator Macy Schmidt’s all-female and majority women-of-color orchestra.

Greta Gerwig’s Best Picture Oscar nominee starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling will be projected onto a giant LED screen as the orchestra performs alongside the film’s Grammy-nominated score.

“There’s nothing quite like the energy of the Bowl,” Schmidt said, “and to bring the world-class women musicians of the Barbie Land Sinfonietta to such an iconic venue feels like a perfect match.”

Non-subscription tickets go on sale May 7.

The Bowl show continues the global takeover for the pink-clad doll, whose movie stormed theaters last summer and ran roughshod over all comers. Barbie was the No. 1 film of 2023 domestically ($636.2 million) and worldwide ($1.44 billion) and is Warner Bros. top-grossing film ever. It has massed numerous awards and accolades, including Song of the Year for Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” and two other Grammys, two Golden Globes and eight Academy Award nominations.
