Although many have tried, few literary romances have matched the gentle satire of Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

Published in 1813, the novel is one of the most acclaimed and still strikingly modern works of world literature as it celebrates its 200th anniversary. Austen is famous for her exploration of manners and morals, relationships and disappointments, parents and children. This classic romantic comedy is the sparkling tale of the Bennets, a family blessed with five daughters and a mother desperate to arrange their marriages. The impetuous pairing of the witty, independent Elizabeth, and the arrogant but honorable suitor, Mr. Darcy, sets the standard for all great couples of the stage, screen and literature.

Cristina Calvit's adaptation of the novel is brought to the Lied stage by the L.A. Theatre Works.

A pre-show talk led by Laura White, a local public radio host, is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Lied Center's Steinhart Room. The talk is free for ticket holders.
