Netflix has released the first images from its upcoming film Maestro, based on the life of legendary composer Leonard Bernstein and starring Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan.
Cooper plays Bernstein and Mulligan stars as stage and TV actor Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein, the wife of the late conductor.
The streamer on Monday shared four pictures from the set of Maestro on social media which trace the life of a young Bernstein (Cooper) with his wife Felicia (Carey Mulligan).
The stills also showcase Cooper as an elderly Bernstein as he conducts an orchestra.
According to Netflix, Maestro will chronicle 30 years of Bernstein’s life who rose to fame after he was tasked with conducting the New York Philharmonic when he was 25. His career skyrocketed when he wrote and composed the music for the iconic Steven Spielberg film West Side Story.
