West Side Story
Date(s): May 01, 2015
When: 7:00 pm
Where: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

Tickets:  $20, $25

Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story, a story of hidden romance and tragedy, tensions rise in this classic American musical.  This most loved show is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's  Romeo and Juliet set in 1950's Manhattan.  We join rival gangs - The American "Jets" and the Puerto Rican "Sharks" - who are battling for control of the historic New York City community (upper west side).  In the midst of the gang tensions and neighborhood prejudices blooms the romance of Tony, former Jets member and Maria, the younger sister of Bernardo, founder of the Sharks.  West Side Story tells a relevant story of the consequences of ethnic violence and romance on the streets of our greatest city.

The Asheville Lyric Opera is thrilled to showcase Bernstein's famous 1957 Broadway classic to the stage of Western North Carolina where audiences will be treated to classic hits including "Tonight," "America," "One Hand, One Heart," "Somewhere," and "I Feel Pretty."
