WEST SIDE STORY Coming to Estonian National Opera This May!
WEST SIDE STORY is coming to the Estonian National Opera, running from May 24 to May 28, with tickets on sale now.
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" brought the idea of social consciousness to the musical stage, leading the way for later works such as "Les Miserables" and "Rent". "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.
An outstanding double cast of the best Estonian and foreign musical actors, giving performances both in Estonian and English, will electrify audiences with such classic songs as "Maria", "Tonight", "Somewhere", "America" and "I Feel Pretty".
