A Little Night Music

Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Buxton Opera House is proud to announce its first joint production with Buxton International Festival.

A deliciously wicked evening of tangled affairs and sensual revelations in Stephen Sondheim's glamorous musical comedy.

Inspired by the Ingmar Bergman film Smiles of a Summer Night, this award-winning masterpiece of romance and deception takes place during a scandalous weekend in the Scandinavian woods. Following the entwined web of passion which surrounds actress Desiree Armfeldt and her admirers, A Little Night Music has enjoyed many West End and Broadway revivals since its original production in 1973. It features one of Sondheim's most memorable scores including the sensual Send in the Clowns, the exuberant A Weekend in the Country and the haunting Night Waltz.

This perfect summer treat is directed by Buxton Opera House Chief Executive Paul Kerryson who has previously directed other musicals by Stephen Sondheim including Follies, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, Pacific Overtures and Into the Woods

Thanks to members of the A Little Night Music Syndicate for their support.
