Musical — West Side Story
In New York's Upper West Side, the air vibrates; rivaling street gangs, passionate rhythms, a fatal enmity, and right in the middle the great love that fights to overcome all obstacles—and tragically fails. Be inspired by the gripping new production of “West Side Story,” which takes the immortal musical classic into a new era. “Maria,” “Somewhere,” “America”—Leonard Bernstein’s immortal melodies and Jerome Robbins’ outstanding choreography have redefined an entire genre. To this day, the musical classic is considered the unrivaled number 1: courageous, explosive, and groundbreaking. Steven Spielberg's Oscar-winning remake from 2021 proves once again how uniquely timeless the “West Side Story” is.
With an exciting new production paired with the legendary original choreography, the international creative team led by New York director Lonny Price is now opening the next chapter in the “West Side Story” success story. Two gangs, one infinite but impossible love—the universal power that made Romeo and Juliet immortal has lost none of its fascination to this day. The music and dialogue of this musical will be in English.
