Star-studded team to produce “The Great Gatsby”
World-renowned ballet dancer Denis Matvienko will star in a new ballet version of Scott Fitzgerald's iconic The Great Gatsby that is being created and produced by himself and a stellar team of artistic hotshots.
Set to premiere in Russia this October, the feature-length production has plans to embark on a world tour afterward. It will be choreographed by Complexions Contemporary Ballet Co-Artistic Director Dwight Rhoden and will have original music by pop composer Konstantin Meladze.
Denis Matvienko’s sister, Alyona Matvienko, will serve as the project’s producer. Recently, auditions for roles in The Great Gatsby were held at the Mariinsky Theatre.
