Suggested by a film by Ingmar Bergman. One of Broadway's most neglected masterpieces, the romantic and achingly beautiful "A Little Night Music" deals with the universal subject of love, in all its wondrous, humorous and ironic permutations. In turn of the century Sweden, middle-aged Fredrik Egerman brings his 18 year old bride Anne to a play starring his former mistress, Desiree Armfeldt. Soon, Fredrik and Desiree resume their romance, incurring the wrath of her current lover, a pompous Count. The situation culminates in a weekend at a country estate, with Fredrik, Anne, Desiree and the Count in attendance, as well as Fredrik's son (who is hopelessly in love with Anne), Desiree's illegitimate daughter, the Count's manic depressive wife and the Egerman's lusty maid. And there, under the summer night, things are set to right. Sophisticated, literate and stylish, "A Little Night Music" is also disarmingly warm, funny, charming and very human. Its well constructed book is one of the best ever written, featuring a strong ensemble cast of vivid, memorable characters that span all age groups. The lilting Ravel inspired score in three quarter time accommodates both strong and less accomplished singers and contains Sondheim's most popular song to date, the haunting "Send in the Clowns."

Produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International
