This joint production brings the jazz-infused aspects of Bernstein's music to the fore. The concert will feature some of his best-known tunes, including Maria and Somewhere from West Side Story, Some Other Time Story from On the Town and I Am Easily Assimilated from Candide, the operetta based on Voltaire's famous novel. The presence of the two Hungarian singers ensures exceptional quality, authentic renditions and unforgettable entertainment. Nikoletta Szőke, whose new album Moonglow will be released in the autumn, has been one of Hungary's most highly-acclaimed jazz singers ever since she won the Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition in 2005, while the dulcet-toned Bálint Gájer, whose style faithfully recalls New Orleans of the 1920s and 1930s, is the only true crooner in Hungary - ‘the Hungarian Michael Bublé'. As well as duets and solo performances, the audience will also be treated to a selection of short films featuring Bernstein himself.
