West Side Story

Description :

West Side Story returns to the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris. This new production, specially conceived in 2007 to celebrate the musical’s 50th anniversary, was a veritable triumph. Fully respecting the original work, the troupe of singers-dancers-actors successfully maintained the original rhythms and feel of the legendary Broadway show, selling out theatres all over the world.

The musical famously sets the Romeo and Juliet story in the context of gang warfare in New York in the 50s, featuring unforgettable medodies by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim (America, Maria, Somewhere, Tonight, …) and choreography by Jerome Robbins.
