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 Stephen 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 heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure.
With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler, the production will feature original orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick, performed by arrangement with Musical Theatre International (Europe) Limited /
‘A Little Night Music’ will run at Leeds Playhouse from 9th May to 6th June 2020.
