Set at the turn of the last century in Sweden, Stephen Sondheim's musical masterpiece, A Little Night Music, interweaves a tangled web of former and current lovers. Fredrick Egerman has recently married a young woman with whom his son, Henrik, has also fallen in love with. Fredrick's dedication to his blushing bride is tested when he reunites with a former flame, the famed actress Desirée Armfeldt. Things grow more complicated when her jealous lover gets wind of the reunion. The coupling and uncoupling comes to a head when Desirée convinces her mother to host Fredrick and his family for a weekend on her lavish country estate - and her lover, with wife in tow, crashes the party.

Steven Sondheim’s musical masterpiece A Little Night Music has been enchanting audiences worldwide since its Broadway debut in 1973. With playwright Hugh Wheeler, Sondheim adapted Ingmar Bergman's comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, into a stunningly sophisticated musical with a timeless score, featuring Sondheim's popular song, the haunting "Send in the Clowns."
