The 125th anniversary of the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam is completed with a very special project: young people between 16 and 26 years perform West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein on 3 and December 4, 2013 in the Grote Zaal of the Concertgebouw.
Helle Lyshøj & Susanna Brenner / Fishing Hunting Shooting are making a series on this particular project of which this film is the first part.
Part 2: The cast met for the first time and works at the photo shoot as well as the auditions for the orchestra.
12 videos made for De Nederlandse Opera to invite people to take part in the project singing at De Nederlandse Opera.

The children are “coincidently” picked up by the cleaner who bring them on a journey of discovery throughout the building. On the cleaning trolley a video screen appears and the children watch nice short films on various locations about who works in the building. A tour with the passion for opera and ballet.
