‘West Side Story’ Returns To Royal Albert Hall In 2014 For Limited Performances

by Dan Bullock

THN are excited to announce that following on from its sold-out anniversary performances in 2012 and over fifty years after its original release, the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer re-mastered film returns to the big screen in high definition at the Royal Albert Hall with its original vocals and dialog intact. Once again, experience this classic romantic tragedy and the bitter battle between the Jets and the Sharks as Leonard Bernstein’s electrifying score, featuring the much loved ‘America’, ‘Somewhere’ and ‘Tonight’, is dramatically brought to life on stage by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra with Jayce Ogren conducting. It’s only due to run for 5 performances from July 4th to 6th, at 14:30 and 19:30 but remember this is next year, 2014!
