World Premiere of Carl Davis's The Great Gatsby with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre
Feb. 01, 2019
The Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre presents Carl Davis's new ballet The Great Gatsby (based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel) in a new production featuring choreography by Jorden Morris, from February 8-17. Notably, Davis wrote a score for a television adaptation of The Great Gatsby in 2000, and will revive the roaring '20s -- the shimmering era of Jazz -- in his new ballet.
Set in the summer of 1922, a romance rekindles between two of Long Island elites: married Daisy Buchanan and mysterious Jay Gatsby. Morris brings F. Scott Fitzgerald’s drama to life with emotive dancing, an original Carl Davis score, and cinematic sets that draw audiences into Gatsby’s exclusive soirees. At the heart of this story is a man who, beneath the glitz and glamour, sees love as his guiding light to the American dream.
