Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre - passionate, fiery, rebellious and strong. Charlotte Brontë created Yorkshire’s ultimate heroine.

When Jane accepts a position as Governess at Thornfield Hall, little does she expect a spark to kindle between her and the brooding Mr Rochester. As you watch her fall under his spell, something hides in the shadows, waiting to destroy her happiness.

Experience the unexpected twists and turns of one woman’s life from the dreary school room to a towering manor house and the sweeping Yorkshire moors. With heart-stirring choreography and music that captures the essence of her timeless tale, watch Jane’s journey unfold.

With choreography by Cathy Marston, and music played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia, Northern Ballet’s brilliant dance actors bring this tale of romance, jealousy and dark secrets to life.
