Oakland Symphony

The Artist's Struggle is the theme of the Oakland Symphony's recital happening May 10th 8pm-10pm at the Paramount Theater (2505 Broadway Ave.)

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.
