Some forthcoming Australian concerts and performances featuring music of Leonard Bernstein:

West Side Story

Hailed as the greatest Broadway musical of all time, the genius of West Side Story was a  remarkable collaboration between Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents, Stephen Sondheim and Jerome Robbins.   Bernstein’s world-famous score features unforgettable songs including ‘Maria’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Somewhere’, ‘America’ and ‘I Feel Pretty’, and this iconic dance musical remains one of the most poignant stage works of the twentieth century.   A modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet; this tragic love story tells the tale of two young people whose happiness is destroyed by the hate of two enemy camps in New York City’s urban jungle.

Director Joey McKneely’s vibrant new staging will feature some of Australia’s most exciting young talent performing Jerome Robbins’ original ground-breaking choreography.
