Maria – Leonard Bernstein/Jose Carreras

You think this stuff is easy? 😉 This is from the documentary about the making of the "symphonic" version of West Side Story in 1984, conducted by Leonard Bernstein and featuring Jose Carreras and Kiri Te Kanawa (Who recently won a law suit in Australia over not performing with a singer whom she learned was famous for having female audience members throw panties on the stage during his performances! ^^)

Having the production filmed obviously didn't inhibit anyone's behavior much, it would seem! Stay around for the end – one of the best versions of Maria I have ever heard – and one reason why I own both the CD and the Making of DVD

    So glad that you enjoyed it! Amazing what you can randomly find on Youtube these days… I was looking for Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy videos (I prefer the Bette Midler) and something made me type in West Side Story… Copyright often precludes something like this staying up for long, so I was glad that the powers that be left it alone. And see? They found a customer by doing so! ^^
