We all recognize the name and remember the story. The novel, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1925, has been adpated as a movie, a play and a ballet, all which tell the love story of Daisy Buchanan and millionaire Jay Gatsby. Set in The Roaring 1920's, a time of glamour, frivolous lifestyles, jazz music, sparkle, parties, and decadence, this ballet captures the romance of the time and the loss of Gatsby's one and only love, Daisy.
The dancing, lavish costumes, the choice of music and the choreography under the direction of Carlos Agudelo, allow the audience to delight in this passionate and stylish ballet. Costume designer Maxine Moehlenbrock and costume mistress Missy Kimbrell have created beautifully beaded and sequined costumes. Carlos pairs his incredible knowledge of music to his choreography evoking pure emotion with each move of the dancers.
