John Joubert’s Jane Eyre

Music at King Edward's School, Birmingham: Jane Eyre by John Joubert, world premiere

Jane Eyre, an opera in two acts
Tuesday, 25 October at 1930, Ruddock Hall

April Fredrick, soprano
David Stout, baritone
English Symphony Orchestra
Kenneth Woods, conductor

Since its first publication in 1847, Charlotte Bronte’s fatalistic masterpiece Jane Eyre has inspired countless re-readings and retellings. Now, marking Bronte’s 200th  anniversary and his own 90th  birthday, the revered British composer John Joubert will finally see the world premiere concert and recording of Jane Eyre, his long-awaited third opera. The unforgettable tale of an obsessive love threatened by an unutterable secret, the opera has been more than 20 years in the gestation. It is, says conductor Kenneth Woods, “Joubert’s undoubted magnum opus”.
With a single public showing as an amateur production some years ago, Joubert has since substantially revised it for this official world premiere, but the idea had taken root as far back as 1969. That’s when, while writing his song-cycle, Six Poems Of Emily Bronte, he was drawn into the world of the Bronte sisters and, inexorably, Jane Eyre. The result is a major operatic work, with a score of translucent beauty, of foreboding; suffused with a sense of the destiny that may hold terrors, may hold love – but may not be withheld.
