OPERA AUSTRALIA & GWB ENTERTAINMENT PRESENT THE BB GROUP PRODUCTION OF

WEST SIDE STORY

ARTS CENTRE MELBOURNE, STATE THEATRE

APRIL 6 – 28, 2019

Love, loyalty, and fate.
The moment the curtain went up on the original West Side Story on Broadway, musical theatre changed forever.

Hailed as the greatest Broadway musical of all time, the genius of West Side Story's creators is unquestioned. The remarkable collaboration between Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents, Stephen Sondheim and Jerome Robbins produced a timeless masterpiece.

Bernstein’s world-famous score features unforgettable songs including ‘Maria’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Somewhere’, ‘America’ and ‘I Feel Pretty’, that have been universally adored for generations; proving this iconic dance musical remains one of the most poignant stage works of the twentieth century.

A modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet; this tragic love story tells the tale of two young people whose happiness is destroyed by the hate of two enemy camps in New York City’s urban jungle. The Jets, sons of previous immigrants to America, battle the new arrivals from Puerto Rico, the Sharks, for domination of the streets.

Director Joey McKneely’s vibrant new staging will feature some of Australia’s most exciting young talent performing Jerome Robbins’ original ground-breaking choreography in two of Australia’s most iconic theatres.

The ideal fusion of dance, music, and theatre; experience this internationally celebrated production of West Side Story for a limited season only.
