More Information on A Little Night Music
A chance meeting between ex-lovers sparks a game of romantic musical chairs over a weekend in the country, as hopelessly mismatched couples find themselves confronted by their own vanities and deceptions.
Glistening with wit and romance, composer Sondheim’s tantalising tale flirts with musical theatre and opera, and includes the classic song ‘Send in the Clowns’.
This new production is the latest collaboration between Opera North and Leeds Playhouse following the critically acclaimed Into the Woods (2016). Featuring Opera North favourites, the Company’s award-winning Chorus and directed by the Playhouse’s Artistic Director James Brining, expect a glorious evening that is heart–warming and heart–breaking in equal measure.
