Opera North - Jack The Ripper: The Women of Whitechapel
London, 1888. Terror is stalking the streets…
A vulnerable community of women lives in the dark shadow of poverty, vice and violence in the twisted labyrinth of the East End. Maud runs a dosshouse with her granddaughter Mary Kelly, who hopes to find a better life with her child and the local boy she loves. But while she tries to plan their escape, an unseen killer embarks on a series of brutal murders, sending the neighbourhood into a fever-pitch of fear and mistrust.
Iain Bell’s score for this new opera uses the eerie sound of the cimbalom to evoke the swirling London fog, while his writing for female chorus conjures up the bonds of comfort, friendship and love between the women.
Daniel Kramer directs a powerful cast including Dame Josephine Barstow, Lesley Garrett and Elin Pritchard.
