Cathy Marston's Jane Eyre ballet as performed by the American Ballet Theatre was scheduled for these days at the Metropolitan Opera House in the precorona days. That, of course, is not happening and some of the members of the ABT have shared lessons or discussions around the production:

ABT Soloist Luciana Paris teaches a Jane Eyre-inspired ballet class. In Cathy Marston's production of the classic story, Luciana plays the role of Bertha, Rochester's wife who is locked up in the attic. "Bertha portrays more of a creature-like movement... so it's very demanding and freeing at the same time," says Luciana. Experience some of Bertha's movements in this week's class!

Corps de Ballet Dancer Anabel Katsnelson was slated to dance the role of Helen Burns (young Jane’s friend in school) in Cathy Marston’s Jane Eyre. Anabel discusses the importance of Helen’s character, how she prepares to bring this classic story to stage and her inspiration for the role. #ABTOffStage #ABTJaneEyre
