Dance along to West Side Story
Tonight, Dubai Opera will showcase the timeless classic, West Side Story, featuring Jerome Robbins' original choreography, which has captivated over three million people in 28 countries. The story follows members of the New York street gang, the 'Jets', who fiercely defend their turf against their rivals, the Puerto Rican 'Sharks', while fiery Latinas dance to sultry Mambo beats in the sweltering summer heat, dreaming of a better life. Amidst the chaos, a great love battles to overcome obstacles and prejudices.
