Dudamel marshals a huge cast of singers, choirs, dancers, rock band, marching band and orchestra for Bernstein’s unabashedly eclectic and highly dramatic theater piece. For this sweeping summation of life and music, Bernstein himself wrote most of the lyrics, which lay bare the crisis of faith experienced by a priest celebrating mass.
