One of Broadway's most respected 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, Desirée Armfeldt. Soon, Fredrik and Desirée 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, Desirée and the Count in attendance, as well as Fredrik's son (who is hopelessly in love with Anne), Desirée'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 includes Sondheim's popular song, the haunting "Send in the Clowns."
