West Side Story

Radio Filharmonisch Orkest

Maria, America, Mambo – classic songs from one of the greatest musicals of all time, West Side Story, based on the romantic tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. The same-titled film won an outstanding ten Oscars in 1961. But even more than the acting, the choreography or the direction, the film takes its iconic status from Stephen Sondheim’s unforgettable lyrics and Leonard Bernstein’s timeless music. The Radio Philharmonic Orchestra plays the music of West Side Story live, accompanying a screening of a newly restored print of the film. With special techniques the film has been re-mastered with the music removed, leaving the original vocals and dialogue intact. This means the orchestra on stage play dead in time with the performers in the movie, creating a very special live vibe.
