A SEDUCTIVE MUSICAL FARCE
“There are mouths to be kissed, before mouths to be fed – and a lot in between.”
Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, Sondheim’s A Little Night Music is a wonderfully witty and deeply moving romance, exploring desire, passion and regret. Be swept away by classic songs like “A Weekend in the Country”, “The Miller’s Son” and the iconic and pensive “Send in the Clowns”.
Set in Sweden in 1900, actress Desiree Armfeldt is caught in a love triangle with lawyer Fredrik Egerman and Count Carl-Magnus Malcom…and their wives. After an unexpected invitation, suspicion and jealousy heighten as the characters all meet for one climactic weekend in the country.
A Little Night Music welcomes back acclaimed director Dean Bryant (Sweet Charity, Assassins, Merrily We Roll Along). Enjoy some of Australia’s most dynamic talent as they inquire – is it really wrong to thirst for more? What pleasures await on the other side?
Sondheim’s towering wit and insight into human nature revolutionised musical theatre with shows like Sweeney Todd, Into The Woods, Gypsy, Assassins, and this legendary musical which many consider his finest achievement. In Sondheim’s words “perpetual anticipation is good for the soul but it’s bad for the heart” – so don’t wait, come and indulge in the wonders of A Little Night Music.
