MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY

Spend the holiday season with your favorite “Pride and Prejudice” characters as they gather at Pemberley, the stately home of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy. In this imagined sequel to Jane Austen’s masterwork, the bookish and beau-less Mary Bennet is growing tired of her role as the obedient middle sister in the face of her siblings’ whirlwind romances. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary’s hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and the chance to be the heroine of her own story. A clever and captivating comedy of manners that will delight Austen aficionados and new-comers alike!

Manon by Jules Massenet by Opera Santa Barbara

Soft silks and delicious taffetas. Ropes of pearls against bare skin. Candlelight reflected in exquisite gilt mirrors. This is the boudoir world of rococo France, where a woman’s face is her fortune. Manon learns early that men will give her anything because she is young and beautiful. She’s happy to play the game, until she makes the fatal mistake of falling in love.

This scandalous story of love, lust and greed became an instant sensation in 18th Century Paris. We bring it to life once more in a sumptuous production featuring a large, talented cast and orchestra, and the most magnificent costumes we have ever put on the Granada stage.

Woody Allen's "Husbands and Wives"

A world-premiere adaptation of Woody Allen’s 1992 groundbreaking film, which was nominated for an Oscar for Best Screenplay. A witty and urbane comic-drama, Husbands and Wives follows two couples, facing middle age squarely in the face, who find themselves questioning their faltering marriages. Woody Allen’s sardonic humor and razor-sharp insight permeate this story of frenetic coupling and un-coupling.
