Revered conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner talks about his first encounter with West Side Story, meeting Leonard Bernstein in Paris as a student and how the story is still poignantly applicable today.

The concert performance of West Side Story is part of the 2019 Edinburgh International Festival. See the performance at the Usher Hall on 5 & 6 August 2019.
