Leonard Bernstein and Steven Sondheim's original musical was first adapted for the big screen in 1961, just four years after it first hit Broadway. It's now receiving it's long-anticipated second outing. Composer David Newman arranged and adapted Bernstein's original score for the film. Gustavo Dudamel conducted the New York Philharmonic during the film's recording sessions in 2019, with additional recording by the Los Angeles Philharmonic done the following year. Jeanine Tesori served as vocal coach, while frequent Spielberg collaborator John Williams served as music consultant.
