Pride and Prejudice Ballet

The American Repertory Ballet presents Douglas Martin’s full-length ballet, Pride and Prejudice, which debuted in April of 2017. The ballet is supported by the wonderfully melodic music of Ignaz Pleyel, the Austrian-born French composer, with costumes tailored to showcase the fashions of the English Regency period from 1790–1820.

Join us as we mark its publication bicentenary with a stimulating literary-theatrical evening featuring a benefit performance of Persuasion, as adapted for the stage by Sarah Rose Kearns. Afterwards, Austen scholar Juliette Wells will join the director and playwright for a short conversation.
