With his novel The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald achieved a true masterpiece in 1925. He created an accurate portrait of the "Roaring Twenties" in the United States, which were characterized by economic growth, crime and jazz. Enrique Gasa Valga has transformed the story of the young millionaire Jay Gatsby into a dazzling dance theater. After acclaimed and all sold-out performances at the Tiroler Landestheater, The Great Gatsby now comes to Munich for the first time.
Jay Gatsby is a young millionaire who lives on Long Island and is surrounded by a fascinating aura: his dubious business dealings, his mysterious origins and his seemingly immeasurable fortune provide material for many rumors. Although the world seems to be his oyster and he hosts lavish dance parties for New York society at his home, he is lonely. Daisy, the love of his life, has married someone else. When her cousin Nick moves into Gatsby's neighboring house by chance, however, the two become closer again. But then a fatal car accident sets in motion a destructive dynamic ...
Enrique Gasa Valga takes the audience into the party of the rich and beautiful with the dance theater The Great Gatsby. Decadent glitter decorations, sexy party outfits, shimmering jazz hands and flirty girls bring the "Roaring Twenties" to life. In a mesmerizing interplay of ballet, tap, acrobatics and jazz, Limonada Dance Company brings the debauchery, idealism and social upheaval of the 1920s to the stage.
A 6-piece live band and the great singer Greta Marcolongo provide the swinging soundtrack for the sophisticated society. Songs by Duke Ellington and Bing Crosby alternate with modern hits such as those by Meghan Trainor. To jazz, blues and free interpretations Gatsby, Daisy, Nick and Co sing, dance and perform on stage. Let yourself be carried away by this dazzling party!
