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.
