HK Ballet Presents The Great Gatsby
15 February - 17 February
F. Scott Fitzgeralds’ classic novel comes to life in this thrilling ballet performance of The Great Gatsby. Set in the glamorous world of New York high society in the roaring twenties it tells the extraordinary tale of abundant wealth, stunning excess and dark obsession. Expect extravagant dancing, decadent parties and steamy jazz music performed live by Billy Novick’s Blue Sycopators and award-winning blues singer, E. Faye Butler. Thought-provoking and emotional, The Great Gatsby reflects on the clash between ‘old money’ and ‘new money’, the disintegration of social and moral values and the empty pursuit of pleasure. Local veteran performer Tan-ki Wong showcases bravura tap dancing and Academy Award-winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) designs original sets and costumes.
