Live Music

West Side Story, Royal Albert Hall


Following on from the amazing time I had at Star Trek Live I was lucky enough to visit the Royal Albert Hall again for another film showing with a live orchestra, West Side Story, thanks to my friend Roxy who scored complimentary tickets. Now neither of us had actually seen the movie before but we soon discovered that we knew a helluva lot of the songs from it!

Unlike Star Trek Live there were no special guests or indeed any introduction but seeing it for the first time with an orchestra was pretty damn epic and I’m not sure there was a dry eye in the house by the end of it. I think it’s great the RAH are putting on these types of show is great and it’s making people more aware of composers and the music behind our favourite movies which would be so, so much different without it.
