West Australian Ballet - The Great Gatsby

​The Great Gatsby - Australian Premiere

14 - 30 September 2017

His Majesty's Theatre, Perth

with West Australian Symphony Orchestra


A classy affair. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tale of love, loss and delusion. West Australian Ballet’s glamourous The Great Gatsby is coming to His Majesty’s Theatre.

This September, West Australian Ballet’s production of The Great Gatsby will come to His Majesty’s Theatre as part of the Company’s 65th Anniversary season.

World-renowned Choreographer, David Nixon (Artistic Director of Northern Ballet), will bring The Great Gatsby to Australian stages for the very first time. This smooth and sultry interpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic tale will transport you straight into a hedonistic haze of 1920’s New York.

West Australian Symphony Orchestra will play BAFTA award winning composer Sir Richard Rodney Bennett CBE’s cinematic score under the instruction of Conductor Myron Romanul and Jon Tooby.
