We are delighted the The Great Gatsby will be performed to the music of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, world-class composer and jazz musician. Richard Rodney Bennett was born 29 March 1936 in Broadstairs, Kent. He enrolled in the Royal Academy of Music in 1953 and then went on to study in Paris in 1957 – 1959 with the French Composer Pierre Boulez.  Bennett wrote his first musical score for ballet in 1980 with the ballet Isadora and then in 1981 he wrote the music for Noctuary, a ballet by Macmillian yet to be performed.
