  • About

    Composer Leonard Bernstein wanted to embrace everything - life in all its richness and music in all its diversity. From the street gangs of West Side Story to the middle-class suburbia of Trouble in Tahiti, it all came together in his works for the stage, where the passion of opera met the directness of music theatre.

    Leading this centenary celebration is John Mauceri, the master’s apprentice. Mauceri worked closely with Bernstein for 18 years, conducting many of the works on this program. As Founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Mauceri is a significant musical figure in his own right and the perfect host for Bernstein’s 100th birthday party.
