Shanghai Ballet Company's original, innovative ballet production based on Charlotte Bronte's famous novel. Read More >

For five performances only the Shanghai Ballet Company are set to make their highly anticipated UK debut with performances of Jane Eyre, an original, innovative ballet production based on Charlotte Bronte’s famous novel. In a bold re-interpretation, choreographer Patrick de Bana’s production puts the character of Bertha Mason, Edward Rochester’s ‘mad’ wife, famously locked up in the attic for most of the novel, firmly centre stage along with her two-timing husband and the novel’s heroine, Jane Eyre.

With strong performances from the three lead characters – Ji Pingping (Jane), Fan Xiaofeng (Bertha), Wu Husheng (Rochester), gigantic, atmospheric sets and lighting, dramatic choreography and an eye-catching costume design that cleverly melds Victorian costume with the 21st century, Jane Eyre is a true break from tradition and sets Shanghai Ballet Company on a bold trajectory towards their London debut.
