Concert Information

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet has inspired countless adaptations, but few as ubiquitous as Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents’s West Side Story. The CSO performed the score to Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins’s film version in 2011 and tickets sold out quickly—don’t miss this chance to see the Best Picture Oscar–winning film on the giant Pavilion and lawn screens while the score is played live by America’s finest orchestra, conducted by film composer David Newman in his Ravinia debut.

Chicago Symphony Orchestra/WSS concert with David Newman as conductor?
How cool!

I not only attended the Boston Symphony Orchestra/West Side Story concert at Tanglewood last July, which sold out to 20, 000 people, including some additional lawn benches, but I attended all three performances of the exact same concert when they came to Symphony Hall here in Boston, as well, and loved every minute of all of these performances. David Newman conducted the Boston Symphony Orchestra/West Side Story concerts as well as the CSO/West Side Story concert, and he did a bang-up (meaning fabulous!) job of doing so.

I guess this concert must be a road show!
