The Capulet Ball at Castello di Amorosa
June 18 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm| $150
At Castello di Amorosa
Perhaps our most elaborate ball – join us at this authentically-built, 13th-century-inspired Tuscan castle and winery in world famous Napa Valley!
Cross the drawbridge and wind through the cellars to an elegant wine reception paired with passed hors d’oeuvres in the beautifully vaulted tasting room. Enjoy a seated family-style dinner matched with Castello wines under the stars in the courtyard with the Capulet family. Dance amidst the stunning frescoes of the Great Hall and witness the lovers profess their bliss in the covered loggia.
A combined party and theatrical event, the Ball will envelop our guests in the grandeur, romance, and beauty of a sensuous masquerade. Action from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet Act I and the famous balcony scene will be played out during the course of the night. Ending on a high note just before the plot takes a turn for the worse, we will enjoy the story of the young lovers steeped in hope and joy. After the poetic exchange of boundless love, the party will continue and our guests will enjoy dessert and conversation with the performers. In keeping with We Players’ penchant for fully-immersive experiences, the story will unfold not in front of, but around and with our guests.
In each spectacular setting, guests will have the opportunity to party with Mercutio, raise a glass with Lord Capulet, join the festive group dance – We Players’ spicy version of the pavane, flirt with fellow masked revelers, and share in the age-old Capulet Family Candle Ceremony before the night is through.
