But the Amanda Folena-directed production isn’t just a one-horse show. It also boasts the terrifically lyrical ballet-inspired choreography of Jerome Robbins (and additional choreography by Nicole Helfer). The muscular Jets and Sharks men know their way around a ballet barre, which makes several of their numbers (the “Prologue” in particular) so poetic it’s sheer pleasure to watch. That’s the way Robbins wanted it. And with Leonard Bernstein’s soaring score, loaded with such memorable songs as “Somewhere,” “Tonight,” “Maria” and “One Hand, One Heart,” every piston has to be hitting to make this musical sizzle. It does, thanks to not only a number of top-notch voices and a solid orchestral effort lead by musical director Sean Kana.

The reason was British violinist Daniel Hope, in town to serve as guest concertmaster and principal soloist in this week’s program. In Thursday’s concert, which repeats through Sunday in Palo Alto, San Francisco and San Rafael, Hope merged brilliantly with the NCCO musicians — and infused each of the evening’s performances with consummate flair. Titled “Hope to Menuhin,” the program spanned the centuries from Bach to Philip Glass, with each work paying tribute to Hope’s mentor, the legendary violinist Yehudi Menuhin. Noting that this year marks the 100th anniversary of Menuhin’s birth, Hope — who was just a child when he met the elder violinist and was invited to perform with Menuhin on German television when he was 11 — did a fine job throughout the evening of drawing connections between Menuhin and the music.

Palo Alto Players really outdid itself with the grandiose set for this show. Scenic designer (as well as production manager and master carpenter) Patrick Klein had a masterful plan of creating the sprawling two-story living room that is representative of 1930s homes in New York. There’s a sturdy stairway that the actors frequently climb to go to the upstairs rooms, but what brings the set closer to the audience are the downstage sofa and chairs that are used extensively when several Sycamores and their long-term (and short-term) guests interact throughout the play. An authentic-looking wood console radio blares out well-known tunes from the era.
