Great Gatsby Dance Show, Margaret Island, 6 & 7 July
The Great Gatsby Dance Show, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s popular novel The Great Gatsby and Baz Lurman’s Oscar-winning film from 2013, promises to be the dance sensation of Summer 2018 in Budapest.

Featuring dancers from renowned international ballet companies, it brings to life the riotous and pleasure-seeking world of America in the 1920s.

This breathtaking spectacle features eight star soloists from the Saint Petersburg Mariinszkij Ballet (including Denis and Anastasia Matvienko), as well as dancers from the Complexions Contemporary Ballet (USA) and the Kiev and Odessa National Ballet companies.

They embody the jaded society of the filthy rich, living in a frenzy of jazz and opportunity, but whose world is superficial and empty of real emotion. Besides this cast of professional artists, the work of director-choreographer Dwight Rhoden guarantees the production’s success.

In addition to working on ballet performances, he has supplied ambitious choreography for Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Nina Simon and, last but not least, one of the world’s most spectacular companies, Cirque Du Soleil.

This recently-premiered production is now touring the world, and it can be seen for the first time in Hungary at the invitation of Open-Air Theatre.

Date and time: 
Friday 6 and Saturday 7 July, 9 pm

Margaret Island Open-Air Theatre
1138 Budapest, Zielinski Szilárd sétány
