The silent piano, closed suitcase...under the spotlight, Jane Eyre, in a long grey skirt, bursts into the still life-like stage. In the misty fog, standing outside the Thornfield manor gate, Jane Eyre unintentionally starts the fate engine of the people in this old manor.
In June 2009, Jane Eyre pioneered by NCPA was staged for the first time, and this was also the first interpretation of Charlotte Brontë's classical novel of the same name on the stage of drama in China. Wang Xiaoying and Yu Rongjun served as the director and the writer respectively. With undiluted poetic language and excellent stage effect, thousands of audiences were immersed into the amazing 160-minute play, and quickly identified with the characters of the play.
