Northern Ballet is thrilled to announce an exciting new
full-length ballet for 2013.
The Great Gatsby, choreographed by David Nixon
OBE, is adapted from the classic novel by F Scott Fitzgerald.
On New York's Long Island, in the heady, indulgent days of
the 1920s, Nick Caraway comes to know his infamous neighbour Jay
Gatsby - a mysterious millionaire with a secret past and a penchant
for lavish parties. As the sparkling façade of Gatsby's world
begins to slip Caraway comes to see the loneliness, obsession and
tragedy that lie beneath.
Northern Ballet are renowned for bringing famous stories to
life. Their adaptation of The Great Gatsby promises to
be a stunning retelling of one of the most compelling stories of
the twentieth century.
