Pagagnini is a sophisticated, thought-provoking, professional production, that is as artistically rich as it is entertaining.  NY Philharmonic meet Marx Brothers.  This  quartet of classically trained string musicians who open themselves to the world of physical comedy and slapstick, ready to jump, scream, dance, fall over and go crazy in the process.    Their music ranges from minuets to country western in the matter of a change in tempo.  The audience, made up of 6 to 60 year olds, is brought in to the action by the energy, antics and musical talent of the performers.  Want some culture wrapped in fun, go see Pagagnini.

Mozart, Chopin, Pachelbel – and even U2 – take on a new tenor when performed by Armenian virtuoso Ara Malikian and company in this award-winning, music/comedy show PaGAGnini, from May 7 through May 23, 2010 at The New Victory Theater.

With hilarious twists on symphonic treasures and modern melodies alike, this wordless concert is a delightful marriage of music and comedy.  What starts out as a serious classical concert soon turns into hilarious chaos when the maestro loses control of the mischievous quartet.  Winner of the Best Show at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Moerser Comedy Prize at the 2009 International Comedy Arts Festival, PaGAGnini’s interpretations are simply ingenious.
