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.

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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Northern Ballet: The Great Gatsby are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
