About the performance

Enjoy songs and instrumental excerpts from favourite Bernstein works: Wonderful Town, On the Town, Candide, Peter Pan, Fancy Free and West Side Story, as part of the Bernstein Celebration.

All his life Leonard Bernstein had a love affair with New York and in his many music theatre works he painted the most vivid picture of life in the ‘City That Never Sleeps’. This performance embraces Bernstein’s New York, offering a rare insight into the composer’s mind with Bernstein devotee Bramwell Tovey at the helm and on the keys.
