5706943The Great Gatsby - Northern Ballet
DateWednesday 8th May 2019 to Saturday 11th May 2019
DescriptionNorthern Ballet's smash hit production of The Great Gatsby returns bringing the glamour and seduction of the roaring twenties to the stage. The Great Gatsby, based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, had its world premiere in 2013 and has since gone on to tour the UK to sold-out houses establishing itself as one of Northern Ballet's most popular and decadent productions. Set on New York's Long Island, in the heady, indulgent days of the 1920s. Nick Carraway comes to know his infamous neighbour Jay Gatsby - a mysterious millionaire with a secret past and a penchant for lavish parties. As the sparkling facade of Gatsby's world begins to slip Carraway comes to see the loneliness, obsession and tragedy that lie beneath. Nominated for a UK Theatre Award for Achievement in Dance, The Great Gatsby is choreographed by David Nixon OBE and earned him a nomination for Best Classical Choreography in the 2014 National Dance Awards. F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic American novel is brought to life as dancers glide across the floor in gorgeous Chanel-inspired costumes to a cinematic toe-tapping score by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett CBE (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Murder on the Orient Express).
