Best Opening Musical Scenes!

In light of the amazing opening of Step Up 4 we look at other amazing musical opening sequences:

West Side Story

‘Click, click, click, click…’ Who can forget the prologue to West Side Story? Never has gang violence been so elegant and expressively choreographed. A simmering tension between gang rivals, the Jets and the Sharks builds to a crescendo amid pas de deux, plie, and furious jazz hands, making for one of the most bizarrely accurate depictions of inner-city turf war of its time. As relevant today as it was over four decades ago, West Side Story tells a tale of territorial human nature that’s perfectly summed-up in this opening routine.
