He was eclectic in his sources - drawing on jazz and modernism, the traditions of Jewish music and the Broadway musical - and many of Bernsteins scores are remarkably well suited to dance. He was particularly associated with Jerome Robbins, their credits together including Fancy Free and West Side Story. To celebrate the centenary year of the composers birth, The Royal Ballet has united all three of its associate choreographers to celebrate the dynamic range and danceability of Bernsteins music.3h including 2 intervalSatellite Screening
