Program: Bernstein - West Side Story in Concert
This season marks the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein and we celebrate all year long, with works for stage, screen, and concert hall by the legendary American composer beginning with the adored and pioneering West Side Story. Follow the New World's most famous star-crossed lovers from timeless hits like “Tonight,” “Maria,” and “Somewhere” (with lyrics by the then-unknown Stephen Sondheim). The Philadelphia Orchestra will be onstage with a cast of talented Broadway vocalists, drawing talent from the success of Bernstein's MASS in 2015. This is Bernstein's complete score, in all its breathless, nuanced—and ultimately heartbreaking—beauty.
