Oakland East Bay Symphony West Side Story

Oakland East Bay Symphony West Side StoryGet your tickets!
Leonard Bernstein’s beloved revision of the Romeo and Juliet story is a tale hauntingly relevant today. Love blooms among a war of class, immigration, and urban evolution, and begs the question: can true love overcome bias? Stunning songs from “Maria” to “Somewhere” fill the Paramount alongside the snaps and jibes of the Sharks and Jets in this concert performance.

The Paramount Theatre is a 3,040 seat Art Deco converted movie theater. When it was built in 1931, it was the largest multi-purpose theater on the West Coast. Today, the Paramount is the home of the Oakland Symphony and the Oakland Ballet, and regularly hosts music of many genres as well as other community events. The Oakland Symphony renovated the theatre during the 1970s.
