West Side Story
In 2019, West Side Story takes to the iconic stage at Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour. Raise a glass as the sun sets and drink in the view as you share a meal in one of the pop-up bars and restaurants on site. Then sit back to enjoy the enthralling show, complete with live orchestra hidden beneath the dramatic stage and fireworks in the balmy night air. Encounter the wildness of youth and ecstasy of love as this modern-day Romeo and Juliet unfolds under a starlit sky. On the mean streets of New York’s West Side, two rival gangs strut their stuff. But when a Jet falls for a Shark, the stage is set for a rumble. Their wistful love story is studded with infectious songs including ‘Somewhere’, ‘Maria’, ‘I Feel Pretty’, ‘America’, ‘Cool’ and of course, ‘Tonight’.
