About the Event

Enjoy Bernstein´s timeless masterwork West Side Story performed by an outstanding double cast of the best Estonian and foreign musical actors, giving performances both in Estonian and English.

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” 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.

    Turning a 60 year old musical into a very present and deep show is a feat that Tallinn National Opera achieves with this production of West Side Story. Performers both on stage and in the orchestra pit, the costumes, the lighting, the directing, everyone and everything was outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
