“Leonard Bernstein has long been one of my personal idols as a conductor, composer, musician, and educator,” said Reineke in an earlier statement. “I'm thrilled to be celebrating his centennial with our NSO performances of one of the most classic and archetypal pieces of American Musical Theater ever written. With its powerful and iconic score, this story continues to resonate with audiences of all ages as it tells its timeless tale of forbidden love and social prejudice.”
