The Great Gatsby ballet on tour

Date Posted: 05/04/2014

Northern Ballet is set to tour UK theatres this autumn with its production of The Great Gatsby, based on F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel.

The production, which evokes the 1920s glamour of New York’s Long Island, features music by BAFTA winning composer Sir Richard Rodney Bennet CB.

A mysterious millionaire with a secret past

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 facade of Gatsby’s world begins to slip, Carraway comes to see the loneliness, obsession and tragedy that lies beneath.
