It’s a timeless tale of love at first sight.
Two teenagers are drawn together across a crowded dance floor, believing love can conquer all, including differing backgrounds, languages, warring gangs, and miscommunication. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story has captivated audiences since its debut in 1957. Our version is in keeping with the original vision of Broadway legends Bernstein, Sondheim and Robbins.
“Tonight, tonight, I’ll see my love tonight.
And for us, stars will stop where they are.”
A co-production of The Glimmerglass Festival, Houston Grand Opera, and Lyric Opera of Chicago
Performed in English with English subtitles
