GATSBY At The Green Light

16 December 2023 – 24 March 2024

In the Studio


Experience a sparkling world inspired by Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby, where the parties of the 1920s meet with 2020s. Get ready to be outrageously entertained through the prism of cabaret, variety, and contemporary music at the Sydney Opera House this summer.

Take your seat at The Green Light, the hottest club in town – owned by none other than the great Gatsby himself. It’s an electrifying establishment radiating extravagance, vitality and abandon, built in the pursuit of love.

Sip on a delightfully infused gin-martini as you find yourself captivated by extraordinary aerial displays, toe-tapping jazz melodies, awe-inspiring vocals, mesmerizing choreography, and resplendent costumes. These ageless vaudeville acts have been reimagined to cast a spell over the ultimate Summer soirée. 

GATSBY stands as an innovative creation by the same masterminds behind the acclaimed L’Hotel, guided by director Craig Ilott, renowned for the spectacular rendition of Amadeus in 2022 and the disco-infused sensation, Velvet Rewired in 2023. 

Come for the meticulously crafted cocktails, delectable party bites, spirited crowd, unbridled revelry, iconic fashion, and of course, the sensational spectacle. Dress to impress your host.  

Prepare for a roaring affair as you travel between time and place with the spirit of Gatsby reigning supreme. 

The dazzling experience at The Green Light awaits you this summer ... among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.
