The Great Gatsby (Asian Première)

From a timeless novel to a glamorous movie, The Great Gatsby is now a thrilling ballet production! 


Enter the glamorous world of New York high society in the Roaring Twenties! Septime Webre’s Asian première of The Great Gatsby tells an extraordinary tale of abundant wealth, stunning excess and dark obsession. Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘Great American Novel’, this production overflows with extravagant dancing, decadent parties and steamy jazz music performed live by Billy Novick’s Blue Sycopators and award-winning blues singer, E. Faye Butler.

Thought-provoking and emotional, The Great Gatsby reflects on the clash between ‘old money’ and ‘new money’, the disintegration of social and moral values and the empty pursuit of pleasure. Academy Award-winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) designs original sets and costumes.

Suitable for ages 6 and above
