The 1920s roar back to life in Northern Ballet’s Jazz Age smash.  

Jay Gatsby’s Long Island mansion buzzes day and night with the young, the rich and the beautiful. But as the champagne flows at his glitzy parties, glamour and romance give way to jealousy and tragedy. Because here in Prohibition-era New York, everybody has something to hide…

Northern Ballet’s acclaimed production of F Scott Fitzgerald’s great American novel is back for 2023, lifted from page to stage by David Nixon CBE’s glorious choreography and Richard Rodney Bennett CBE’s dazzling score.  

It’s the party to end all parties – and you won’t want to miss it.
