Stephen Sondheim create a stunning tour de force when transforming Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Winner of four Tony Awards, this is a musical work that has forever entranced the world of theatre.
A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress, Désirée Armfeldt, and the men who love her. Both men—as well as their jealous wives—agree to join Désirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Désirée’s mother’s estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.
