Jack the Ripper is perhaps the most famous murderer in the United Kingdom, although his identity has never been discovered. Beginning in 1888, the mysterious criminal murdered at least five women in cold blood in the Whitechapel district, at the time one of the poorest and most infamous parts of London.
Although the investigation continued for a long time, the crime remained unpunished. Books, shows, films and even board games and video games were dedicated to the killer, but rarely did anyone focus on the victims: the women.
The opera, Jack the Ripper: The Women of Whitechapel, is dedicated to the women of Whitechapel, exploring the themes of community and friendship. The Women of Whitechapel will run from March 30th to April 12th at the London Coliseum in London.
