"Walk By Faith, Not By Sight" 2 Corinthians 5:7

The Great Gatsby Ballet!?!

That’s right, everyone!  The Great Gatsby is being made into a ballet!  Though a little aofjadpldfjhesitant at first to how this will work out, the more I think about it, the more excited I become.  Many of what we consider the “biggest” ballets, such as Swan Lake, or Sleeping Beauty were created over a century ago, based on fairy tales.  I guess what excites me about this is that this could be the ballet of our time.  The Great Gatsby of F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of the most-known books (at least in my opinion) of our time (if you haven’t read it, you’re wrong).  I don’t have statics of anything, so don’t quote me on that, but I look at the publicity and number of remakes this story has had, and that is what gives me this idea.  It’s story has risen in popularity since the newest remake with Leonardo DiCaprio.  100 years from now, will the ballet be the classic of our time?  I want to believe so from the hype the story has.  I am truly excited for this ballet, and hope that I can see it once it goes on tour.

What are you thoughts?  How do you feel about the story being made into a ballet?  What aspects are you hoping will be portrayed?
