Strictly Gershwin is a spectacular tribute to the glitz, glamour and romance of the golden age.

Strictly Gershwin comes roaring back to evoke the glamour and romance of the golden age in this spectacular tribute to George and Ira Gershwin. Summoning the silver screen magic of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, we take audiences on a dazzling journey through ballet, jazz, tap, and ballroom dance genres, to the big band era soundtrack of the thirties. It’s a true celebration of the Gershwins, with Derek Deane’s choreography a sensational match to their larger-than-life Broadway creations and seductive Hollywood tunes.

With music adapted by Gareth Valentine, Deane’s Strictly Gershwin was choreographed for the English National Ballet in 2008 and has since been adored across the world. Queensland Ballet performed it in 2016 to rave reviews.

Featuring the Gershwins’ greatest hits including Rhapsody in BlueSummertimeStrike up the BandSomeone to Watch over Me‘S WonderfulShall We DanceI Got Rhythm and many more, experience the music synonymous with the romantic ideals of post-war America, jazz, Broadway, and debonair dance routines, culminating in a sparkling grand finale from An American in Paris.”
