Dubai Opera will host the well-known American musical, West Side Story.

West Side Story, the most well-known American musical of all time, will be performed by Dubai Opera in a rare travelling production that will feature Jerome Robbins' original choreography. Since its debut in 2003, the show has been watched by over three million people in 28 different countries and has delighted audiences on three continents. The well-known Broadway director and performer Lonny Price, who will begin the next chapter in the epic success story of the legendary musical, has brought together a fresh, global creative team. Get in touch with one of the top tour and travel companies in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, if you want to go on a city tour of the city.

What's the story behind West Side Story?

The musical examines the conflict between the Sharks and the Jets, two young street gangs from various ethnic backgrounds. The Sharks, a Puerto Rican immigrant team, compete against the Jets, a New York team, for neighbourhood supremacy. Latinas dream of a better life as they dance to sensual Mambo beats in the summer heat. In the midst of all this drama, a great (but tragic) love is struggling to get beyond all the barriers and biases that stand in its way. Music by Leonard Bernstein and words by Stephen Sondheim will be performed for the audience. This is one musical that needs to rocket to the top of your watch list when combined with the choreography by Jerome Robbins.
