The Great Gatsby Ballet

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s great American novel – The Great Gatsby – will be brought to life through dance in a February, 2013 World Premiere by Ron Cunningham, with the help of live period music from Billy Novick’s Blue Syncopators. The Roaring 20’s and Prohibition set the backdrop, during one of our country’s most tumultuous periods of change, for this story of passion, greed and loss, as Ron creates his first new ballet in five years. In keeping with the theme of early 20th Century American culture, Gatsby is paired with George Balanchine’s classic tribute to the era – Who Cares? – to the music of George Gershwin.

    Hi All,

    Look forward to it. Does anyone have any interest in dinner/drink beforehand? There are some nice restaurants within walking distance. I was going to try and be downtown by 6:00 or so. -Mike

      Next time let's all try to meet up before hand - I'm glad I got to meet Michael, even though it was a quick hello during intermission!

    Yo Gatsy fans!
    If you want to meet up durring the intermission, I'm wearing a dark green shirt and a gray coat. I'll be on the first floor lobby. See you then!

    Ah, The Great Gatsby. Gosh I seem to go back every 4 or 5 years and read it again whether I need it or not! Sure, lets do it! This is certainly a new take the Gatsby. I'm intrigued. Look forward to it

    I found the ticket prices using the link above - the "cheap seat" ticket I purchased was $16, but they go up from there depending on where you want to sit and how much you want to pay. I figured that I was going to make this an inexpensive weeknight treat for me! Hope this helps! Looking forward to meeting the group - intermission seems like a good idea!

      I think so - I bought my ticket on line and will pick it up tonight at will call. :-)

    This just happens to be the night for which I already have my ticket, so yes! How can we get together in intermissions?

    I'm in, but getting an inexpensive ticket - is the group getting together before/afterward? Love Gatsby, love ballet, love Gershwin!
