After its sell out success at Sadler’s Wells in 2013, Northern Ballet’s The Great Gatsby returns by popular demand.

On New York’s Long Island in the heady, indulgent days of the roaring 1920s, young Midwesterner Nick Carraway meets his infamous neighbour Jay Gatsby – a mysterious millionaire with a secret past and a penchant for lavish parties. As the sparkling facade of Gatsby’s world begins to slip, Carraway comes to see the loneliness, obsession and tragedy that lie beneath.

Choreographed by David Nixon the dancers glide across the floor in gorgeous Chanel-inspired costumes to a sweeping, filmic score by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett CBE (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Murder on the Orient Express) played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

Bursting with passion, style and drama, this blockbuster ballet returns for seven performances only.
