WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Depicting the glamorous decadence of the Roaring Twenties, The Great Gatsby is 20th Century ballet at its best presented in an emotional story that serves as an emblem of a Golden Age. Within an elaborate production that captures all of the optimism, prosperity and riches of the decade, the multi-act ballet features lavish costumes and exquisite sets coupled with popular songs of the era, including "I Want to be Loved by You," "What a Wonderful World" and "What'll I Do." This Pittsburgh Premiere of the heartbreaking Jazz Age tale uses emotional choreography and follows millionaire Jay Gatsby's romantic yearning for Daisy Buchanan while portraying the excitement and despair of the times. The Great Gatsby is a classic tragedy of man's disillusionment with the American Dream set against the excesses of the 1920s.
