Celebrate Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday with a production whose heartbreaking themes, brilliant music and vibrant characters forever changed American musical theatre. “West Side Story” transports Shakespeare’s tragic “Romeo and Juliet” to the streets of 1950s New York, where two star-crossed lovers on opposite sides of a bitter gang rivalry fight to keep their relationship alive. Sixty years after its premiere, this visceral tale about the immigrant struggle to find a place in American society still resonates.
"[Eklund Opera Director] Leigh Holman has achieved such heights in her tenure that it seems almost unthinkable that she could reach a new level of excellence." ~Kelly Dean Hansen, Daily Camera
