Live Nation and Mattel have announced Barbie The Movie: In Concert, a live-to-film concert experience produced by Overture Global Entertainment that will bring Warner Bros. Pictures’ feature film, “Barbie” – Mattel Film’s first theatrical production – to life with live music from The Barbie Land Sinfonietta, a presentation from orchestrator and executive producer, Macy Schmidt’s, all-women and majority women-of-color orchestra. 

Kicking off July 2 and traveling to 37 cities, including the previously announced July 27 date at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, the film will be projected onto a giant LED screen above The Barbie Land Sinfonietta as it performs its score across North America. The immersive experience features limited-edition merchandise, photo opportunities and more. 

“We can’t wait for fans of all ages to join us in this immersive experience, celebrating the biggest movie of 2023 and bringing the magic of Barbie to life like never before,” says Josh Silverman, chief franchise officer, Mattel. “The incredible talents of Macy Schmidt and The Barbie Land Sinfonietta guarantee an unparalleled and unforgettable adventure.”   

Furthering the mission, Barbie The Movie: In Concert will include a touring road crew consisting of a veteran lineup of all-women technical and production professionals.

“Music lends so much heart and excitement to the ‘Barbie’ film; between the stunning and clever orchestral score and the upbeat iconic pop soundtrack, music is carrying us through the story,” says Schmidt. “On top of getting to experience the film unlike ever before, Barbie The Movie: In Concert audiences will have the privilege of watching some of the world’s best musicians come together and do what they do best. Throughout this entire process, I’ve been so inspired by Mattel’s genuine commitment to everything this film stands for. I am particularly excited to be partnering with Mattel as I have long been inspired by Barbie’s purpose statement: ‘to inspire the limitless potential in every girl.’ It couldn’t be more aligned to have an all-women orchestra performing this film, bringing its message to life onstage.’”
