How does West Side Story relate to Legida or Pegida demonstrations? Our arts and culture insider gives us her views and review on the Broadway and Hollywood classic as currently performed in Leipzig.

It premieres at Oper Leipzig this Saturday, June 20. For more events in Leipzig this weekend, visit us at http://www.facebook.com/leipglo.
My first piece for Leipzig Zeitgeist (LZ) about Leipzig Ballet was when Mario Schröder first appeared on the scene. It felt right. I was new. The company as we now know it was new. I went to my first after party that night. I mainly watched, but I did meet some people that would enrich my life. I must say it’s a far cry from my current after party shenanigans. How many years has it been? Five! It feels like yesterday and yet, like a lifetime.
