The Great Gatsby

Watch The Great Gatsby trailer on YouTube Film shot on location at Bibis Italianissimo & Northern Ballet, Leeds. Filmed & edited by Zsolt Sándor for Mothership UK.
F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is considered to be one of the great American novels, and Fitzgerald's best work. It's no surprise then that it has inspired adaptations across film, TV, music and more from its release in the 20s to the current day. Following the World Première of our own adaptation of this classic novel we look back (and forwards) to some of the most noteable adaptations.
Hannah Bateman talks about The Great Gatsby, her role and what to look out for in the new ballet from David Nixon OBE.
Since early November, Northern Ballet’s technical team has been hard at work building the sets for the World Première of The Great Gatsby.
Look who's on the cover of February's Dancing Times? Our very own premier dancer Tobias Batley looking sharp as Gatsby from our new ballet The Great Gatsby.
Jay Gatsby (aka Tobias Batley) tells us a little more about himself... Describe yourself in three words Romantic, introspective and loyal What’s your favourite cocktail? My man, at my lunchtime haunt in town would tell you I prefer a Highball. But in the evening I unwind with a French 75.
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.
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..
Discover the heady, indulgent days of New York’s Long Island during the glamorous 1920s as Northern Ballet brings F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby to the stage.
