West Side Story

The new version of West Side Story made me aware how modern the music of Bernstein still is and how actual the theme still is. It shows the spiral of aggression and revanche creating more pain and grieve. As it was in the Romeo and Julia of Shakespeare. The Audience was crying and shouted noooo!

The translation was horrible often not even close to what they sang or meant.

Rules because of Covid where strictly applied so that felt good.
