The Great Gatsby

Last night's London première of The Great Gatsby brought out the stars to enjoy Northern Ballet's new production. From Sir Ben Kingsley to Gok Wan, from Darcey Bussell to Craig Revel Horwood, all came to Sadler's Wells Theatre to see our new production.
Northern Ballet's most successful ever spring season approaches its climax next week with the London Première of The Great Gatsby at Sadler's Wells.
Act One Prologue Nick Carraway follows directions to his rented cottage in West Egg on Long Island. Jimmy Gatz, now Jay Gatsby, remembers his own early love for Daisy Fay. He won and lost her love when he was a young Officer going off to the Great War. Criminal activities suggest Gatsby's financial gains are through corruption. Gatsby looks at a flashing green light over the bay willing Daisy, who now lives in East Egg with her husband Tom Buchanan, to come over the water to his beautiful mansion, and back to him.
This resource pack is designed to give teachers an insight into Northern Ballet's production of The Great Gatsby, and to provide creative ideas that can be used in the classroom. It is particularly suitable for teachers working with pupils in dance and drama.
