About

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony serve up the most sizzling release of the summer: Leonard Bernstein’s legendary musical score to West Side Story. The live recording from San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall captures the first-ever concert performances of the complete Broadway score, including spoken dialogue.

The talented cast is led by two young stars of the stage and screen: gay icon Cheyenne Jackson (30 Rock, Glee, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida) as Tony, and Alexandra Silber (Carousel, The Woman in White, Master Class) as Maria. There can be no better conductor at the helm of this greatest of theatrical scores than MTT, who is indelibly associated with Leonard Bernstein and his legacy.

The appeal of this West Side Story will be broad, to collectors of classical, musical theatre and audiophile recordings. The sumptuous package features two premium audio hybrid SACDs in a 100-page, hard-bound full colour book featuring a major essay, notes by Jaime Bernstein and Rita Moreno, interviews, a historical timeline, archival photographs, complete lyrics, and extensive rehearsal and performance photos.

It may prove to be the most significant recording of the show since the Original Broadway cast.” - Huffington Post
