The Great Gatsby

On August 10 at 2pm and 5pm, Opera Omaha is presenting selections from John Harbison’s opera, The Great Gatsby, as part of the Joslyn Castle’s summer literary festival honoring the life and work of F. Scott Fitzgerald. This is fantastic timing for fans of Gatsby! You could spend weeks of your summer immersed in the book and related works like the recent movie release by Warner Brothers, the Joslyn Castle literary festival, and our presentation of excerpts from the opera. It could be a very 1920s summer!

The artwork below, by visual artist Colleen Clark, illustrates the feeling and elements of the story that Fitzgerald penned and Harbison set to music. Join us at 1850 Farnam Street on August 10 at 2pm or 5pm and enjoy the music and the tale of The Great Gatsby. Tickets are $20. A $5 discount is available for Joslyn Castle members and Opera Omaha subscribers. Click here to buy online or call 402-595-2199.
