Pride & Prejudice: An Adaptation In Words & Music

Arts Centre Melbourne State Theatre

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE An Adaptation in Words and Music is a new theatrical adaptation of Jane Austen’s most famous work – Pride and Prejudice. The enduring story of the romance between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy is presented in an intimate drawing-room setting, in much the same way that Jane herself first read the story aloud to the Austen family and their closest friends. Weaving around Austen’s own words is Carl Davis’ magical score from the much-loved BBC TV drama series of Pride and Prejudice.

Film, television and stage icon, Nadine Garner, internationally acclaimed violinist Madeleine Easton and rising star of classical piano, Dan Le, join together for this theatrical retelling in words and music of Jane Austen’s most famous work.

Pride and Prejudice is arguably the greatest romance novel of the English language. More than 200 years after her death, Jane Austen’s work continues to resonate with every new generation. It is fitting that much loved Australian actor Nadine Garner will honour this legacy in a unique, but faithful production, promising captivating entertainment, humorous moments and some wonderful surprises.
