Why See Jack the Ripper: The Women of Whitechapel?
From composer Iain Bell and librettist Emma Jenkins comes this powerful new commission that explores the lives of the women among the community targeted by one of the most ruthless serial killers in history - and their determination to survive the diabolical evil of Jack the Ripper.
In darkness comes friendship as this emotional work shines a light on the working class women of Whitechapel - the Ripper's hunting ground. Together they must conquer fear and outwit the menace that comes in the night.
With Bell's reputation for sailing emotional peaks and troughs in his scores and a subject matter that remains pertinent to this day, this collaboration between the ENO and Opera North is likely to be one of the season's most sought after offerings.
Opening night: 30 March 2019
Sung in English with English titles projected above the stage.

This bracingly clever, bleakly funny play offers no easy answers to any of its questions: what is justice, what is vengeance, and which is right?
