Provocative finger snapping of street gangs, howling police sirens, Puerto Rican girls’ whirling skirts on New York City’s flat roofs, everlasting love and fateful conflict playing out across derelict West Side backyards. Timeless songs like ‘Tonight’, ‘Maria’, ‘America’ and ‘Somewhere’, composed by Leonard Bernstein, together with the haunting and deeply moving story, make this a classic masterpiece.
The 1957 Broadway premiere of West Side Story redefined the genre of the musical both musically and in terms of dance. The film version, awarded ten Oscars, brought it to an audience of millions. To this day it is the undisputed Number 1 of American musical theatre: daring, realistic, and as relevant as it was on the day of its premiere. In 2017, West Side Story – one of the most successful stage shows of all time – comes to Dubai Opera in an award-winning production, the only production of the musical in the world that features Jerome Robbins’ original choreography.

Concept and choreography by Jerome Robbins
Book by Arthur Laurents
