A girl. Two rival gangs. One fatal love affair. Inspired by Shakespeare’s tumultuous love story “Romeo and Juliet”, and set amidst the rivalry of teenage gangs in 1950s New York, “West Side Story’s” revolutionary choreography and unforgettable score changed the face of musical theatre, when it premiered on the Broadway stage in 1957. “West Side Story” brought the idea of social consciousness to the musical stage, leading the way for later works such as “Les Miserables” and “Rent”. “West Side Story” is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time, full of memorable melodies that secured the musical 732 performances in its original Broadway run and was made into a blockbuster film in 1961. An outstanding double cast of the best Estonian and London musical actors, giving performances both in Estonian and English, will electrify audiences with such classic songs as “Maria”, “Tonight”, “Somewhere”, “America” and “I Feel Pretty”. On August 25, 2018 a centennial passed from the birth of a beloved composer, conductor, musician and cultural ambassador Leonard Bernstein. In the two-year period from the composer’s 99th and 101st anniversaries, more and less known works by Bernstein will be performed within a world-wide festival. Estonian National Opera joined the anniversary programme in November and gave a concert performance of “Candide” that marked its first ever performance in Estonia. Leonard Bernstein was the first American composer to achieve not only fame, but a measure of superstardom generally accorded only to pop stars and movie icons. As a conductor, he was known for a dramatic, flamboyant manner; as an educator, he brought classical music to a whole new generation through his televised Young People’s Concerts with the New York Philharmonic, beginning in 1958; as a composer, he made his mark in the concert and theatre halls as well as in movies.
