The World Premiere of Northern Ballet's exciting new production promises to be a stunning retelling of one of the most compelling stories of the twentieth century.

Discover the heady, indulgent days of New York's Long Island during the glamorous 1920s as Northern Ballet brings F Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby to the stage.

Nick Carraway comes to know his infamous neighbour Jay Gatsby - a mysterious millionaire with a secret past and a penchant for lavish parties and beautiful women. As the sparkling façade of Gatsby's world begins to slip, Carraway comes to see the loneliness, obsession and tragedy that lies beneath.

The seductive style of the era is recreated through stunning sets and costumes. Music by Academy Award nominated and BAFTA winning composer Sir Richard Rodney Bennett CBE (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Murder on the Orient Express), will be played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

With an unparalleled reputation for telling stories through dance, Northern Ballet is the perfect company to translate this popular American novel into ballet. As The Great Gatsby steps into the spotlight, don't miss your opportunity to see what promises to be one of the most stylish adaptations of this classic work.
