“A textbook example of dance storytelling that honours its source.” (Financial Times) Marston’s Jane Eyre challenges the idea of a classic ballet heroine. After a difficult upbringing, Jane becomes the governess for the mysterious Mr. Rochester, discovering the struggles of society’s expectations. A literary classic brought to life by Cathy Marston’s stirring choreography and an enthralling Victorian design,Jane Eyre shows that love can conquer any obstacle.
