The iconic movie in concert experience!
The musical that perfectly demonstrates the passions and tensions of the American dream comes to life this fall , in a specially remastered screening at Walt Disney Concert Hall! Having digitally removed the majestic Leonard Bernstein score from the movie and transplanted below to the professional performance of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, get lost in the magic of the ground-breaking movie that changed musical theater forever. This special performance will be conducted by movie composer David Newman, who scored The War of the Roses, Matilda, Bowfinger, and Heathers and Serenity.
From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim -a collection of standards that includes 'Tonight,' 'America,' 'Maria,' 'I Feel Pretty' and 'Somewhere' - is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. And the extraordinary, Tony-winning choreography by Jerome Robbins completely changed the language of Broadway dance.
