The rivalry and romance of one of Hollywood's greatest musicals enters a new dimension as the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra plays West Side Story's electrifying score and unforgettable songs live while the film shows in full high-definition on the big screen. The winner of 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, when it emerged in 1961, West Side Story is the cinematic adaptation of the beloved Broadway musical, in which Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet was thrillingly updated to a modern tale of love and war between street gangs the Sharks and the Jets. Written by Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim, and with a jazz, Latin, and classical-inspired score by Leonard Bernstein, this cinematic concert event at Heinz Hall for the Performing Arts will make you fall in love with the magic of West Side Story all over again.
