The Northern Ballet’s production of American classic The Great Gatsby is coming to the Lyceum Theatre this spring.
The show will is set in New York in the 1920s and tells the story of Nick Caraway and how he comes to know his infamous neighbour Jay Gatsby – a mysterious millionaire with a secret past and a penchant for lavish parties.
The production will be choreographed and directed by artistic director David Nixon OBE – his 14th new ballet for Northern Ballet.
He said: “The Great Gatsby is a real American classic from an iconic era. The roaring twenties were a time of exuberance, indulgence, resilience, fashion, dancing and jazz. The story has everything for the makings of a great ballet: a love triangle, decadence, desperation and heartbreak.
“I am proud of the fact that as a company we produce and tour more new full-length work than any other ballet company in the UK. Producing The Great Gatsby shows we tap into current trends, creating work audiences have an interest in at present.”
Tickets for The Great Gatsby cost £12 to £34 and are on sale now from Sheffield Theatres’ box office. Call 0114 249 6000 or visit the website to book.
Address: 55 Norfolk Street Sheffield South Yorkshire S1 1DA
