Producciones Yllana and Ara Malikian present PAGAGNINI, an innovative, non-text musical show that brings to life some of the most treasured musical pieces in the World in the key of comedy.

Throughout the show, four great musicians not only perform some of the greatest compositions of geniuses at the level of Mozart, Pachalbel, Chopin, Boccherini, Falla, Sarasate and of course, Paganini,  but also involve popular genres such as rock or folk. But PAGAGNINI is anything but just a concert. The musicians play, dance, jump, laugh, cry, interact and with the audience converting the show into an original comedy where the violin and the cello transform themselves spontaneously into new and original instruments (guitars, mandolins, percussions…).

Paganini’s own genius was a special referente during the creation of the show, not only the title. His complex compositions, rash personality and amazingly talented interpretations reflect the spirit of PAGAGNINI.

As well, a handfull of memorable moments provide us with a new vision of the so called “classic contemporary music” of our days such as U2 or the Frenchman Serge Gainsbourg.
