NORTHERN Ballet’s new full length production, ‘The Great Gatsby’, will be performed at the Grand Opera House in Belfast from Wednesday through to Saturday, April 10-13.

With choreography, direction and costumes by artistic director David Nixon, co-direction by Patricia Doyle and sets by Jerôme Kaplan, the production promises to be a stunning re-telling of one of the most compelling stories of the Twentieth Century.

‘The Great Gatsby’ had its world premiere in Leeds on March 2 and is an adaptation of the novel by F Scott Fitzgerald which is set on New York’s Long Island in the heady, indulgent days of the 1920s.

Creating new full-length ballets is a mission of Northern Ballets and furthers the company’s efforts to bring new audiences to dance.

The current ‘Gatsby craze’ has seen a surge of popularity in the classic American novel, with Gatsby-inspired fashion on the catwalks, stage productions in London and the much anticipated Hollywood movie due to be released this year.

Tickets for the Belfast production start at £9.25 and can be purchased online at www.goh.co.uk, via telephone on 9024 1919 or in person at the theatre box office located in the foyer.
