Since its founding in 2007 by American director/visual artist Doug Fitch, Swiss filmmaker/producer Edouard Getaz, and multimedia entrepreneur Frederic Gumy, Giants Are Small has become one of the most groundbreaking and critically acclaimed New York City production companies. Collaborating with some of today’s finest orchestras and outstanding talents, Giants Are Small is known for its extraordinary range of genre-bending fusions of theater, live filmmaking, and music. In 2010 Giants Are Small created a production of Ligeti’s Le Grand Macabre with the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Alan Gilbert, which was cited as 2010’s best opera of the year by The New York Times, New York magazine, and Time Out New York. The Philharmonic collaboration continued with the 2011 production of Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen (New York magazine’s “Best Classical Event of the Year”) and A Dancer’s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky (2013, and later screen in movie theaters worldwide); and HK Gruber’s Gloria – A Pig Tale for the NY PHIL BIENNIAL (with Alan Gilbert conducting forces from The Juilliard School). The 2015 production of Petrushka during the Orchestra’s EUROPE / SPRING 2015 tour marks the company’s fourth collaboration with the Philharmonic. In 2008 at Walt Disney Concert Hall, Giants Are Small presented a new version of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a production that merged live classical music, live animation, and video effects in real time. In 2014 Giants Are Small Discovery was launched; these exploratory productions, drawing on diverse musical genres, apply its signature treatment to smaller scale works in a range of cultural spaces; Dadabomb and Gloria – A Pig Tale were the first two works presented under this label. In co-production with Universal Music and Deutsche Grammophon, Giants Are Small is currently developing Peter+Wolf in Hollywood, which will result in an iPad app, CD, digital album, and live show.
