Jane Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice is slated to come alive in the gorgeous setting of Briar Rose Winery for two weekends only. *Stay tuned for your opportunity to win tickets from Temecula Qponer*
Doors open at 6 p.m. and performances begin at 7 p.m.
As described by the Shakespeare in the Vines website, “Directed by Missie Van Beeber, all the wit and romance of Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation.” Food and wine will be available.
About the show:
Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority. But with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it’s a subject that ‘s difficult to escape. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense — but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?
Note: Pride and Prejudice is the show for fall season, and is not part of the Shakespeare in the Vines Summer season ticket holders program.
Staged at the beautiful Briar Rose Winery, seats will be provided, though cushions and blankets are advised, especially with the nights turning chilly once again!
Come early, and enjoy a complete Briar Rose award winning wine tasting prior to the evening under the stars — such as Talking Frog, the wine that reminds that “Sometimes you really do have to kiss a lot of frogs ’til you find your prince” a unique bubbly wine lager that is light, sweet and fruity. Or in honor of September 11, owner Lee Linkogle’s personal and memorable, We Remember wine. This vintage honors Linkogle’s fellow men and woman who dedicated their lives to defend our country everyday without rest. The structure of the wine is pure bliss with a Bordeaux like structure with fruits of exceptional flavor and character. Enjoy this rich firm finish without a heavy round mouth feel. A fruit forward wine with blackberry, raspberry, mocha and vanilla notes. Perfect for sipping under the stars, as you await your outdoor seating, opening at 6 p.m.
