Perfectly preserving the tone and mood of the novel whilst condensing it into two acts, David Malouf, with the gift for language already evident from his novels and poetry, presents afresh the timeless story of Charlotte Bronte'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 Berkeley.
