October 23 – 25, 2015
Return to the splendor of the Jazz Age and the frivolity of the Roaring Twenties with F. Scott Fitzgerald’s passionate, thought-provoking, and complex The Great Gatsby. Septime Webre’s visionary choreography fuses contemporary ballet, jazz and tap with narrative to bring to life the iconic story of obsession, wealth and excess. Don’t miss this evening of explosive and swooning dance accompanied by a live jazz band that will blow the roof off this gin-joint.
Choreography – Septime Webre (Washington Ballet)
LIVE Music – Set to a score including original works composed by musicologist and early 20th century music expert Billy Novick
