Northern Ballet returns to Sadler’s Wells with its full-length ballet adapted from F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic tale The Great Gatsby.

Set on New York’s Long Island in the 1920s, young Midwesterner Nick Carraway meets his infamous neighbour Jay Gatsby, a mysterious millionaire with a secret past and a penchant for lavish parties. As the sparkling façade of Gatsby’s world begins to slip, Carraway comes to see the loneliness, obsession and tragedy that lie beneath.

The Great Gatsby is directed and choreographed by Northern Ballet’s Artistic Director David Nixon OBE, with co-direction from Patricia Doyle, sets by Jérôme Kaplan, lighting by Tim Mitchell and costumes also by Nixon.

Please note, children under five will not be admitted.
