The Great Gatsby

On the 2nd December I spent a lovely day at Leeds Book Fair in Horsforth letting people know about our new production for 2013, The Great Gatsby.
In preparation for the production we’re all learning a lot about the book and the roaring 20s so thought I'd share some facts I've learned so far..
Northern Ballet's new full length production, The Great Gatsby, is the must see ballet for 2013. With choreography, direction and costumes by Artistic Director David Nixon OBE, co-direction by Patricia Doyle and sets by Jerôme Kaplan, The Great Gatsby promises to be a stunning retelling of one of the most compelling stories of the twentieth century.
Northern Ballet is thrilled to announce an exciting new full-length ballet for 2013.
David Nixon, OBE
David Nixon has been Artistic Director of Northern Ballet since 2001. David trained as a dancer, first in his hometown of Chatham, Ontario and then at the National Ballet School of Canada where his training began in earnest. It was during his time there that he first became interested in choreography, helping to revive a choreographic workshop with the approval of school director Betty Oliphant. After further training in Europe he returned to Canada to train with Erik Bruhn and the great Russian teacher, Eugene Valukin.
