The Grand Rapids Ballet Company is doing Jack the Ripper for the Halloween season. From the article:

Classical ballet has told tales of princesses, mythical personalities and Shakespearean characters, but never about murderers -- which is what intrigued GRBC artistic director Gordon Peirce Schmidt.

"No one's done it," Schmidt said. "To my knowledge, no one's done 'Jack the Ripper.'"



Interesting. I know of operas (Lulu) and scores of songs, movies and TV shows about Jack. There really hasn't been a professional ballet before?

Jack the Ripper as Video Game Hero?
Hmm. According to this site, the upcoming video game featuring Jack the Ripper has the player as Jack killing "demons."

This won't end well.

Another Jack the Ripper Video Game?
Rumor has it that EA, makers of video games, has trademarked "The Ripper" to possibly be the name of an upcoming video game.
