It has finally returned! »Barrie Kosky's breath-taking production gives Bernstein's old West Side Story back its hardness and explosive power« [Berliner Zeitung] Along with Bernstein’s unique music as conducted by Koen Shoots, it is not least thanks to Otto Pichler's »truly contemporary choreography: raw, unpolished, virile, full of testosterone« [Berliner Morgenpost] that this production has always sold out in previous seasons.
