Sample text

This boxed-in illusion will become significant in a few later scenes as Tony sings about Maria. Chapters 5, 6: “Something’s Coming,” Not Giving an Inch [00:26:03] The next significant musical cue for our discussion is the scene in which Tony (a former Jets member) and Riff discuss their friendship, plans for attending the upcoming dance, and Tony’s search for something he is unable to define. Tony’s song, “Something’s Coming,” is by itself not unique or unusual. It is in duple, primarily consonant, and quite homophonic.

The Americans respond with gyrating rock ’n’ roll gestures, more sexually egalitarian combinations accompanied by frenetically flailing arm and leg movements. In the “Dance at the Gym,” Jerome Robbins presents us with a study of disparate cultures through his mastery of stylistic dance. Bernstein responds with carefully crafted rhythms and orchestrations that allow the jazz and Latin-laced melodies to gracefully and enthusiastically cross cultures. His music is wild and expansive, and it serves multiple functions here.

This is a gentle reference to the subplot of authority figures interrupting the youths at play. As Tony begins to depart, we see Maria gazing at him through the bars of the fire escape, gripping the railings as an inmate would. The bars frame her innocent, love-struck face. A match shot shows Tony equally framed. The subtle musical underscoring continues as does the framing bars. Both Tony and Maria grip the bars, prisonerlike, as they make plans to meet later. A final parting verse is slower and gentler than the first two, perhaps reflecting a diminishing physical stamina, if one chooses to adopt the sexual interpretation of the scene.
