Horizontal TabsDescription Love. Passion. And Revenge. Be mesmerized by Emily Brontë's words brought to life through Aquila Theatre's heart-wrenching production of "Wuthering Heights." The ProductionAquila Theatre brings to life Emily Brontë's classic story of all-consuming passion with its new production of "Wuthering Heights." The novel, one of the most famous works of world literature, was first published in 1847 under a pseudonym and is Emily Brontë's only work. Wuthering Heights recounts the tale of ill-fated lovers on the lonely moors of northern England. Heathcliff and Catherine meet as children when Catherine's father brings the abandoned boy home to live with them. The two grow up together, living freely on the moors while Heathcliff is tormented by Catherine's brother. When Catherine's parents die, her brother turns Heathcliff out, forcing him to live among the servants. Catherine marries and the crushed Heathcliff disappears. Years later, a wealthy Heathcliff returns, but is it too late for them? Wuthering Heights is a deep and wide story of passion, revenge, family, class, and the supernatural. Over a century and a half later, Brontë's magnum opus remains incredibly moving. Bringing its signature style and dynamic approach, Aquila re-imagines one of the most famous love stories ever told with this heart wrenching new production. Aquila Theatre is renowned for its ability to adapt works of classical literature into enthralling and mesmerizing live performances. Impeccable design and a unique physical style combine with a marvelous cast to make "Wuthering Heights" an exquisite and captivating theatrical experience. Artists Aquila Theatre's mission is to make classical works accessible to the greatest number. A play becomes 'classical' because we recognize that after a time it transcends the original culture it was created for. It retains the power to provoke the central question of what it means to be human. As a company dedicated to the classics, we feel a responsibility to acknowledge and explore newfound classical works. Founded in London in 1991 by Peter Meineck, Aquila is now based in New York City.
