Leeds-based dancers are waltzing into the spotlight with their latest production of Jane Eyre.

The show, an adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s iconic masterpiece, has been choreographed by international dance maker Cathy Marston.

The new full-length ballet by Northern Ballet premiered during the 200th anniversary year of Charlotte Brontë’s birth.

Speaking in an earlier interview Cathy Marston said: “Jane Eyre might be a love story, but she is not your typical romantic heroine and Rochester is not your average Prince Charming. “

After performing in Doncaster, the Leeds-based company will then move on to Richmond, Aylesbury, Wolverhampton, Stoke and Leicester between May and June. Visit www.northernballet.co.uk.
