Red carpet arrivals were feeling pretty (oh so pretty!) as they strutted their stuff at the opening night of West Side Story in our Lyric Theatre on Saturday 24 July 2021.

Audiences were whisked away to 1950’s Manhattan, New York, where the dazzling original choreography of Jerome Robbins and timeless Sondheim lyrics brought the world of the Jets and Sharks, and the tragic love story of Tony and Maria, to life.

The epic musical production is a must-see and has sold-out theatres across the world. So, if you don't yet have tickets, now is the time to snap them up.

West Side Story is presented by Opera Australia and GWB Entertainment in association with QPAC, the BB Group Production of West Side Story.
