West Side Story, en concert

The impossible, ill-fated love between Maria and Tony, the fire escape stairs of New York, the violence of Manhattan, the gangs, adolescence and life’s intensity… West Side Story is packed with memorable songs about America– the America that we dream of, sing of and delight in.. Gérard Lecointe, Bernard Tétu and Jean Lacornerie have joined together to bring us a part of that America. They offer up a new concert version of the musical comedy with innovative staging - a rhythmic plunge into the streets of the West Side of Manhattan.
