In February 2021, Colorado Ballet presents Carl Davis’s The Great Gatsby with choreography by Jorden Morris. Carl Davis's score is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s brilliant fable of hedonistic excess and tragic reality in 1920s America and was written for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre in 2019. Davis's scores conjures both the shimmering Jazz Age and the destructive obsession which drives Gatsby’s world to unravel. The ballet has been so successful that Davis is currently creating a Great Gatsby Suite for orchestra.
