About the Event

The Great Gatsby
with live orchestra
Choreography by Jorden Morris
Music by Carl Davis

Northrop audiences fell in love with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s Mozart in Motion program last fall. We’re delighted to welcome them back with their latest creation, a new ballet based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s acclaimed novel The Great Gatsby. Jorden Morris’ choreography (last seen here in Moulin Rouge) and Carl Davis’ original score celebrate all of the revelry and recklessness of that Jazz-age summer on Long Island when married socialite Daisy Buchanan rekindles her romance with the mysterious Jay Gatsby.

Thank you to our partners at Fitzgerald in Saint Paul, a nonprofit celebrating the life and works of F. Scott Fitzgerald in his hometown and The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library.
