Since first appearing on Broadway in 1957, the production of West Side Story continues to wow audiences.
This timeless masterpiece, a retelling of Romeo and Juliet, is credited with being the greatest Broadway musical of all time.
Ms Howes, SGCS Music Teacher, also gave the production a glowing review:
It was a such a privilege to see a professional musical performed at the Sydney Opera House. Our Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11 Music and Drama students all thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity. They were enthralled by the story of Romeo and Juliet being appropriated to 1950s Manhattan, New York. The orchestra, stage production, dancing and singing was incredible and the students were mesmerised from start to finish.
West Side Story is on at the Sydney Opera House until Sunday 6 October 2019.
