Filmed live at the Peacock Theatre in London in 2008, this 97 minute children's ballet, based Charlotte Brontë's famous novel, tells the story of Jane Eyre's hard life which finally ends in happiness when she marries the Byronic Mr. Rochester.

Aspiring young dancers will be captivated by the beautiful costumes of the ball and thrilled and amazed by the dramatic great fire scene.
