West Side Story (the 1961 film) & the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood:

Just this past Saturday, seven months after I'd bought my ticket in person at Boston's Symphony Hall and made my hotel room reservation at the Courtyard by the Marriott Hotel, out in Lenox, MA, back in mid-January of this year, I had the great, good fortune of going out to Tanglewood, five years later, to once again witness the Boston Symphony Orchestra playing a live rendition of the 1961 film version of West Side Story, and to see a Hi-Def, re-mastered, reprinted and cleaned up version of the film West Side Story on a large screen. Although the Boston Symphony Orchestra played a live rendition of WSS's musical score, the singing and the dialogues in the film West Side Story were kept intact.Collapse )
