West Side Story is a musical with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. It was inspired by William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. The story is set in the Upper West Side neighborhood in New York City in the mid 1950s, a multiracial, blue-collar neighborhood. The musical explores the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds. The members of the Sharks, from Puerto Rico, are taunted by the Jets.

Robbins insisted that the show be cast with young unknowns who could dance as well as sing-because dance is a tribal language, primal and powerful. The fusion of forms would be as snug as a switchblade, and the musical would move as the crow flies, direct and dark. Gerald Freedman, Robbinss assistant director on West Side Story, remembers Bernstein saying this over dinner, after the show opened. It was a real treat to see this again on television recently - a great composer conducting his own great score for one of the best musicals of all time, using opera singers in the lead roles Jose Carreras as Tony, Kiri Te Kanawa as Maria, Tatiana Troyanos as Anita, Kurt Ollmann as Riff.
