Jane Eyre
With Students in grades 10-12

Music and Lyrics by Paul Gordon
Book and Additional Lyrics by John Caird
Based on the novel by Charlotte Brontë

Jane Eyre is a haunting retelling of the Charlotte Brontë classic about an orphan girl who grows up to become the governess of Thornfield Hall, where her new employer Mr. Rochester is not all he seems.  Filled with soaring melodies and a romantic lyricism uncommon in the modern Broadway musical, Jane Eyre is a sweeping Tony-nominated love story, breath-taking in its scope and beauty, in the tradition of Les Misérables.

Directed by Nick Sulfaro
Choreographed by Ceit Zweil

Humiseva Harju on intohimoinen rakkaustarina, joka kiehtoo vuosikymmenestä toiseen. Lija Fischerin uusi sovitus on raju, rujo ja maaginen esitys ihmisistä mahdottomien valintojen edessä.
Esipuheessaan kirjaan Emily Brontë kirjoittaa: ” En ole varma onko oikein luoda Heathcliffin kaltaisia olentoja – epäilen, ettei ole.” Heathcliff on yksi hurjimmista ja kostonhimoisimmista olennoista, joita kirjallisuus on meille antanut.
Mutta miksi Heathcliffin ja Cathyn rakkaustarina silti koskettaa meitä?
Esitys tarjoaa moniulotteisen visuaalisen maailman, jossa ohjaaja Fischerin apuna Humisevan harjun maailmaa luovat myös Maija Linturin nukkehahmot.
Multa. Kuu. Tuuli nummella. Iho. Huulet. Mies ja nainen. Kuolematon rakkaus.
