The world premiere of Iain Bell’s Jack the Ripper: The Women of Whitechapel, following his critically-acclaimed In Parenthesis. A disadvantaged group of working-class women are drawn together in their determination to survive the murderous terror that stalks London’s Whitechapel in 1888.

Iain Bell‘s new opera, with a libretto by Emma Jenkins, explores powerful themes of community and women struggling against the odds, posing questions about the hypocritical attitudes of ‘respectable’ society. The mythic status of the unidentified serial killer is addressed through a refreshingly modern lens, which speaks to us over a century later. With vocal and orchestral writing that always packs an emotional punch, Bell’s score features music that is mercurial and explosive one moment and heart-wrenchingly beautiful the next.

Review: JACK THE RIPPER: THE WOMEN OF WHITECHAPEL at the Coliseum Theatre

03 Apr 2019

This misguided project from one of the UK’s biggest opera companies, English National Opera (ENO) is so motivated by good intentions that I find it had to be as dismissive as most other critics have been, especially as, for me, it had enough effective individual moments to warrant four stars.

Jack The Ripper - The Women of Wihtechapel I’m really intrigued by the next offering from English National Opera at their home The Coliseum. It’s a new piece called JACK THE RIPPER: THE WOMEN OF WHITECHAPEL and it’s by Iain Bell and Emma Jenkins.
