A Little Night Music

Musical in two acts
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler

The scintillatingly witty A Little Night Music is Stephen Sondheim’s adaptation of the Ingmar Bergman film Smiles of a Summer Night (Sommarnattens leende), focusing on a tangled web of romantic entanglements spun in the space of a single weekend around actress Desirée Armfeldt (Damjana Golavšek) at the turn of the last century.

When Desiree stops in the town to perform with her acting company, she meets her ex-lover Fredrik Egerman (Marjan Bunič), igniting the old flame of their love affair. This arouses feelings of intense jealousy among everyone involved: Desirée, Fredrik, his young wife Anne (Sara Lešnik), Desirée’s current lover, Count Carl-Magnus (Lucas Somoza Osterc), and his wife, Charlotte (Željka Predojević Korošec). All characters, including both men – and their troubled wives –, gather at a weekend house party called by Desirée’s mother, Madame Armfeldt (Polona Vetrih) who lives in opulent retirement in the country. There, endless possibilities open up for surprising new romantic combinations and unexpected twists.

This vibrant and elegant musical, part social comedy part battle between the sexes, is played out against the backdrop of Sondheim’s lilting waltz-driven score, a continuous flow of comic, dramatic, and romantic songs, including the hit Send in the Clowns.
