Steven Spielberg's West Side Story is released in cinemas on December 10

On December 10, director Steven Spielberg's highly anticipated remake of West Side Story will be released in theaters. The remake of the beloved 1961 movie musical features Gustavo conducting an adaptation of Leonard Bernstein's iconic original score, working with a music team that includes Academy Award-nominated composer and conductor David Newman, Tony Award-winning composer Jeanine Tesori, and Grammy-nominated music supervisor Matt Sullivan. West Side Story is produced and directed by Spielberg from a script by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tony Kushner.

Gustavo said of the project: “When asked to collaborate with the greatest film director of our time, on one of the greatest musicals ever written and conduct a score composed by one of your heroes, first you catch your breath and ask yourself, ‘Is this really happening?’ After you realize this is true, you humbly, yet very quickly, say, ‘YES, thank you’.”
