GATSBY at The Green Light: A Summer Spectacle at Sydney Opera House

Cool Sh*t, Play, Sydney / 19 December 2023

Step into a world of opulence and extravagance as the Sydney Opera House transforms its Studio into a dazzling spectacle for GATSBY at The Green Light.

On now until 25 February 2024, the world premiere of GATSBY at The Green Light promises to transport audiences to a realm of cabaret, music, and dance inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s timeless classic, “The Great Gatsby.”

In a lavish celebration of the era, The Green Light promises to be the hottest club in town. A century after we were first introduced to Jay Gatsby, this immersive theatrical experience invites Sydneysiders to step into one of his legendary parties for an evening of escapist fantasy and revelry.

The enchanting journey begins with pulsating music that draws you into the club’s embrace, where a talented troupe of entertainers will dazzle you with their performances across the glittering bar stage. Prepare to be mesmerised by live vocals accompanying a variety of acts, including aerial stunts, burlesque, dance, and breathtaking circus performances. With an ensemble of world-class local and international talent, GATSBY is a theatrical experience that must be witnessed to be believed.

For the audience, there are options aplenty. You can choose to take your seat and watch Gatsby’s fantasy play out before your eyes, or opt for a more immersive experience by reserving a cabaret table. These tables come complete with a 1920s-inspired canapé and cocktail package, allowing you to get up close and personal with the club’s captivating characters.

True to the spirit of the prohibition-era speakeasies, The Green Light offers a bespoke range of beverage options created exclusively for this limited season. Sip on cocktails like the Green Light Gimlet, Blind Tiger Martini, and Reggio Manhattan as you revel in the ambiance of the Roaring Twenties.

GATSBY marks another stellar addition to the impressive catalog of director Craig Ilott, known for his award-winning productions in cabaret and variety. Don’t miss your chance to experience the grandeur and allure of the Jazz Age brought to life in the heart of Sydney.
