Jane Eyre

The ultimate heroine, Jane Eyre’s journey to overcome the odds is one of literature’s finest love stories.

Orphaned at a young age and cruelly treated by her Aunt, Jane Eyre is a plain but intelligent child who grows up knowing little kindness. Sent away to a charitable school, Jane later accepts a position as a Governess at Thornfield, a gentleman’s manor whose master is the dark and impassioned Mr Rochester. In spite of their social differences, an unlikely bond grows between the pair but as their romance develops, it becomes clear that Mr Rochester has a hidden past that threatens to ruin them both.

With choreography by Cathy Marston, and a new score by Philip Feeney played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia, Northern Ballet’s brilliant dance actors will bring this ultimate tale of romance, jealousy and dark secrets to life.

Commemorating 200 years since the birth of Charlotte Brontë, this is an unmissable new ballet from dance’s finest storytellers.
