The first teaser for Maestro has been revealed, a towering and fearless love story chronicling the lifelong relationship between cultural icon Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein.

Starring as Bernstein and in the Director’s chair, the Oscar nominated Bradley Cooper looks to be on his finest form alongside co-star, Carey Mulligan who plays Bernstein’s wife.

The drama spans over 30 years, and chronicles Bernstein’s fascinating career. He made his conducting debut at the New York Philharmonic aged 25 and he was blacklisted before being cleared of being a communist just before he composed the Oscar-nominated score for On The Waterfront.

Bernstein was also an activist in the civil rights movement, and outspoken on issues including ending the Vietnam War.

Achievements and politics aside, the through line for the movie is the complex story of the marriage between Bernstein and his wife.

A love letter to life and art, Maestro, at its core, is an emotionally epic portrayal of family and love. It’s available in select theaters from November 22 and on Netflix December 20.
