UPMC Presents West Side Story Suite + In the Night + Fancy Free with the PBT Orchestra

May 4, 2018 @ 12:00 am - May 6, 2018 @ 12:00 am


A Jerome Robbins & Leonard Bernstein Centennial Celebration…

PBT celebrates the 100th birthdays of collaborators Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein with three company premieres. The theatrical West Side Story Suite samples iconic songs (with dancer vocal debuts!) and Tony-winning choreography from the duo’s groundbreaking musical (1957) and film. PBT also debuts in Robbins’ first ballet and claim to fame: Fancy Free (1944), an early Bernstein collaboration that inspired the Broadway hit On the Town. Rounding out the program is a more rarely seen Robbins masterwork: his classical In the Night (1970), which sets romantic pas de deux for three couples to four Chopin nocturnes.
