If you've ever felt a pull to the glitz and glamour of Gatsby's famous parties, the extravagance of the roaring 20s and the cold comfort of a green light across the water, this is a cultural event you should be adding to your summer calendar. Coming to the Sydney Opera House from Saturday, December 16 is Gatsby at The Green Light.

This immersive theatre experience transports you to the hottest club in town, inspired by the classic story of The Great Gatsby, in a space that intercedes the 1920s and 2020s. Bear witness to a show quite unlike anything else in town. Think escapist theatre with a healthy serving of cabaret, variety and contemporary music onstage. Performed by an impressive international cast, including local vocalist star Odette and musical director Kim Moyes who collaborated on a bold original song in the production, the talent is worthy of Gatsby's legendary parties.

In terms of the seating, you can pick from two options. You can play it safe and secure a seat the usual distance from the stage or do Gatsby justice with an up-close cabaret table that includes a 1920s canape and cocktail package to complete the experience. Don your finest 20s outfit, and prepare for an evening that needs to be seen to be believed.

Gatsby at The Green Light runs on select dates between Saturday, December 16 and Sunday, February 25, 2024. For more information and to book your tickets, visit the website.
