A Little Night Music

Lord, what fools these mortals be. 

In 1900’s Sweden, couples waltz, marriages are made and unmade, and the summer night smiles on the young and old alike. Stephen Sondheim’s ravishing score, set entirely in variations of waltz time, tells of the complications of love across generations, spiced with sparkling wit and rueful self-awareness.

Since its premiere in 1973, A Little Night Music has become a classic, a modern American operetta that plays with our ideas of romance with delicious humor. With a score that includes the famous “Send in the Clowns,” it’s the perfect midwinter treat.

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Book by Hugh Wheeler.
