CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021 though we have some hope for some panto ....

About the Show/Event

Bernstein Double Bill - West Side Story Symphonic Dances/Trouble in Tahiti
Information for Bernstein Double Bill - West Side Story Symphonic Dances/Trouble in Tahiti at The Lowry, Salford (Concert). Trouble in Tahiti - The American Dream turned suffocatingly sour. Leonard Bernstein's one-act opera is an unsparing examination of a marriage falling apart in 1950s suburbia. Sam and Dinah appear to have the perfect life in their 'little white house'. But their growing failure to connect exposes a mutual feeling that they are trapped in a life that has turned into a lie. Bernstein's score is heavily influenced by the syncopated rhythms of jazz and by the distinctive American vernacular of musicals and the movies. A highlight of Opera North's Little Greats season in 2017, Matthew Eberhardt's production of Trouble in Tahiti is deeply touching, whilst giving full value to the Hollywood pizzazz of Dinah's showpiece number 'Island Magic'. Sung in English. West Side Story Symphonic Dances - A major collaboration with Phoenix Dance Theatre. Bernstein's West Side Story broke new ground in many ways. It responded to the newly contemporary issue of gang violence in American cities, and the story-telling was driven by dance. The composer himself arranged the Symphonic Dances as a work to stand on its own, free of the story of the show. Taking this as her cue, choreographer Aletta Collins creates a dance work which interprets Bernstein's thrilling and poignant music outside of the narrative of West Side Story. This entirely new piece will explore the experience of young people through themes of group identity and family, conflict and violence, but also the dream of a better life, somewhere.
