Northern Ballet is bringing the glamour and seduction of the roaring twenties to Bradford this autumn with its stylish adaptation of The Great Gatsby at the Alhambra Theatre from 11 – 15 November 2014.


The adaptation of the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald is set on New York’s Long Island, in the heady, indulgent days of the 1920s. Nick Carraway comes to know 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.

Nominated for a UK theatre award for achievement in dance, The Great Gatsby is choreographed by David Nixon OBE. David said “The Great Gatsby is an American classic from an iconic era. The 1920s were a time of exuberance, extravagance and style in pre-depression America and the Great Gatsby incorporates these themes within what is essentially a wonderful love story.

Tickets for The Great Gatsby at the Alhambra theatre are on sale now at or by calling the box office on 01274 432000.
