Description

Strong emotions, amazing dance scenes, some of the most beautiful melodies in the world with a big orchestra and top soloists

Savoy’s new interpretation of the West Side Story brings international star soloists and top Finnish performers to the stage, such as Maria Ylipää, Diandra and Chike Ohanwe, who was the Jussi Award winner in October 2020.

Tuomas Parkkinen’s direction and Ima Iduozee’s choreography bring the musical back to its roots, to the era of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

West Side Story deals with the uniqueness of love and the absurdity of hate. It asks if there is hope for us to live in a better world one day. The most famous songs in the musical are Maria, America, Tonight and Somewhere.
