West Side Story is superb at Boheme Opera

1087

The Boheme Opera Company, one of New Jersey’s stand-out treasures, has maintained it’s standard of excellence in this season’s production of that classic of the American stage, West Side Story. Leonard Bernstein’s and Stephen Sondheim’s masterpiece re-tells the timeless story of star-crossed lovers – a tragic theme well before Romeo and Juliet. It is a large production requiring elaborate choreography and strong voices. This edition, performed in the palatial environment of The War Memorial in Trenton, gave it everything it needed.
