BERSTEIN: SYMPHONIC DANCES FROM WEST SIDE STORY AND MORE
October 24, 7:30pm
Composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein’s acclaimed musical West Side Story is one of the greatest love stories of all time. Due to its tremendous success, Bernstein adapted it into the Symphonic Dances from West Side Story in 1961. The show is a fusion of opera, ballet, jazz and classical music that outlines the classic love vs hate storyline, where two street gangs clash horns on the streets of New York.
This production features the talents of seven vocal soloists: Tess Altiveros as Maria; Elizabeth Galafa as Anita and Francisca; Bianca Raiso as Rosalia; Dawn Padula as Consuela; John Marzano as Tony; John Arthur Greene as Riff; and Caisey Raiha as Bernardo.
