FANS of the Brontes and ballet can join an iconic heroine on a journey of romance and tragedy with the World Première of Northern Ballet’s Jane Eyre.

Based on the novel by Charlotte Brontë and performed during the 200th anniversary of her birth, Northern Ballet will bring this story to life at the Cast Theatre, in Doncaster, from May 19 to May 21. 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.

The ultimate dramatic tale of romance, jealousy and dark secrets, Jane Eyre is the story of one woman’s indomitable spirit overcoming all boundaries.

Jane Eyre is choreographed by acclaimed British dance maker Cathy Marston.

Patrick Kinmonth, who has designed over 20 theatrical productions, has designed the sets and costumes.

Alastair West, whose Northern Ballet credits include Giselle and A Christmas Carol, has designed the lighting.

Northern Ballet’s artistic director David Nixon said: "Having already adapted Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights it seems appropriate that Northern Ballet should also immortalise her sister’s Jane Eyre through dance. Doing so in the bicentennial anniversary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth makes it more special."
