A golden image of the gilded age – a young white man clad in pale gold trousers and waistcoat lightly throws into the air a smiling white woman wearing a frothy white dress, her golden curls backlit like a halo. They are surrounded by a cloud of tumbling glitter.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s modern classic takes you back to the roaring 20s with flapper girls, glitz and Golden Age glamour.


Northern Ballet’s sell-out sensation is back – get ready for the most glamorous party in town.

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.

The classic American novel is lifted from page to stage by David Nixon CBE’s glorious choreography as dancers glide across the floor in gorgeous Chanel-inspired costumes. A cinematic score by Sir Richard Rodney Bennett CBE (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Murder on the Orient Express) is played by a live orchestra.

Bursting with passion, style and drama, don’t miss this blockbuster ballet.
