The Great Gatsby Tickets
The Great Gatsby is the name of an upcoming ballet production by Ron Cunningham, based on the classic novel written by F. Scot Fitzgerald. Considered a classic example of 20th century American literature, the book has gone on to be hugely popular all over the world. In fact, it is considered a “Great American Novel,” and the Modern Library named it the second best novel of the last century. Cunningham himself is the artistic director of the prestigious Sacramento Ballet and, as such, is accomplished in his own discipline. The combination of his talent with the source material is sure to make The Great Gatsby one of the entertainment highlights of the year. Needless to say, The Great Gatsby tickets are sure to be in high demand
The story of the upcoming ballet production will reflect that of the book. As such, the events of the tale take place over the course of a few months in 1922. The time was known as the Roaring Twenties for the success that many people enjoyed and the excesses that they indulged in, as a result. This period was also notable for being the time of Prohibition, when the United States government banned the sale of all forms of alcohol.
This backdrop serves a key role in the story, which revolves around a wealthy but very mysterious socialite named Jay Gatsby who throws huge, extravagant parties at his opulent mansion. He is the source of much fascination and musing for a young man named Nick Carraway, a Yale graduate and World War I veteran who lives next door. Carraway eventually becomes a part of his wealthy neighbor’s circle and is sucked into a lifestyle of greed, lust, tragedy and obsession.
Given the inherent depth and scope of the story, The Great Gatsby has been adapted into many mediums. To date, the novel has been made into five separate movies, starting from the Herbert Brenon silent film in 1926. The biggest and most ambitious of all of these, however, is the sixth-ever film adaptation of the novel. Set to be released only a few short months apart from the upcoming ballet production, this movie version of The Great Gatsby is directed by famed director Baz Luhrmann. The star-studded cast features likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Amitabh Bachan, Tobey Maguire and many more. Other mediums that The Great Gatsby has been adapted into include the theatre, radio, television shows and, of course, opera and ballet.
The upcoming ballet production of The Great Gatsby , though not the first, will be a dance interpretation of the plot and setting. It will be a kinetic take on the zeitgeist of one of the rockiest periods in American history as portrayed by one of the greatest literary creations of the country. The ballet is helmed by Roy Cunningham, the artistic director of the renowned Sacramento Ballet, a leading dance company in the U.S.
Cunningham joined the organization in 1988 and, along with his wife, almost single-handedly elevated it to new heights, propelling it in success with his unique vision. Under Cunningham’s leadership, the company has become the best arts institution of its kind in Sacramento. Cunningham’s unique approach to dance achieves an impressive mix. This is between something that has wide public appeal as well as something that challenges dancers and pushes them to their limit.
Due to this, the Sacramento Ballet has developed a dynamic repertoire of productions, including The Nutcracker, Cinderella and Romeo & Juliet. The company has also staged the works of Twyla Tharp, Glen Tetley, Kathryn Posin, Septime Webre, David Parsons, Val Caniparoli, Agnes de Mille and Trey McIntyre. All in all, in twenty seasons, the Sacramento Ballet has produced as many as eighteen Balanchine masterworks, fifteen complete ballets, forty Sacramento premieres and as many as thirty world premieres.
Now leading his first ever new creation in five years, Cunningham is poised to put on a great show. Helping him will be the likes of Billy Novick’s Blue Syncopators, who will provide authentic period music, thereby completing the overall experience the way it should be.
The combination of all these factors – Fitzgerald’s source material, Cunningham’s talent and track record as well as Billy Novick’s music – are sure to make The Great Gatsby one of the most faithful adaptations of the source material to date To this end, the ballet will be extravagant, glamorous and an overall spectacle to behold. Eager dance enthusiasts can now get their The Great Gatsby tickets , which are widely available.
