Perfectly preserving the tone and mood of the novel whilst condensing it into two acts, David Malouf presents afresh the timeless story of Charlotte Brontė's Jane Eyre, one of the most enduring literary classics of all time. The love between Jane and Mr Rochester, and the mystery of the woman behind the locked door, are here set to music in the opera composed by Michael Berkley. With David Malouf's brilliant new interpretation of the novel's characters and actions into words and song, this is perfect for fans of both opera and Charlotte Bontė, and displays once again Malouf's genius for language, already evident from his novels and poetry.
