Northern Ballet's The Great Gatsby

You are invited to the most glamorous party in town.

Lose yourself in the decadence of 1920s New York with Northern Ballet’s sell-out sensation The Great Gatsby, a ballet by David Nixon OBE.

Mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby has a penchant for lavish parties and beautiful women. As the sparkling façade of his world begins to slip, the loneliness, obsession and tragedy that lies beneath is revealed in one of Northern Ballet’s most treasured productions.

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 score by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett CBE (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Murder on the Orient Express).

Bursting with passion, style and drama, don’t miss this blockbuster ballet.
