The follow-up to Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut A Star Is Born was a long time coming, but we won’t have to wait for it much longer. Netflix dropped the first teaser for Maestro, which chronicles the life of the iconic West Side Story composer Leonard Bernstein.

According to Netflix’s official synopsis, this high-profile biopic will reflect on a towering and fearless love story between Bernstein and his wife and actress Felicia Montealegre. They spent three decades by each other’s side and stuck together through many ups and downs.

The streamer also described this film as “a love letter to life and art” and “an emotionally epic portrayal of family and love.” In addition to portraying the titular role, Cooper also directed and produced this film and co-wrote the script with the Oscar winner Josh Singer.

Maestro is led by Cooper and Carey Mulligan, while its supporting cast includes Matt Bomer, Maya Hawke, Sarah Silverman, Josh Hamilton, Scott Ellis, Gideon Glick, Sam Nivola, Alexa Swinton, and Miriam Shor.

Maestro will have its world premiere at the 80th Venice International Film Festival next month, where it will be in the running for the prestigious Golden Lion. It’s scheduled for a limited theatrical release on November 22, before hitting Netflix on December 20.
