West Side Story (film with live music)
At the Holstenhalle in Neumünster a spectacular film music event will be put on stage this summer. Leonard Bernstein’s famous “West Side Story” music, that premiered in 1957 on Broadway and was reorchestrated for the 1961 film version, will be performed live by the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra. The film itself will be shown in full length on a screen in HD, including the original dialogue and original singing tracks with German subtitles. Co-directors Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins created a cinematic masterpiece that won no less than ten Oscars. The films energy and story continues to attract audiences to this day. But the film’s enormous success is undoubtedly due in large part to Leonard Bernstein’s spectacular music. One thing’s for sure; hearing timeless hits such as “Maria,” “Tonight” and “America” performed live to the original scenes is simply breathtaking.
