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.
