Summary

Summary

(Opera). New York's Metropolitan Opera ushers in the new millennium with the world premiere of John Harbison's splendid opera, The Great Gatsby, with a libretto based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece. Among the highlights of the production are the fourteen "Gatsby Songs," written in the energetic dance style of the 1920s with sparklingly witty lyrics by Murray Horwitz.
