Shoreline Community College’s Musical theater department presents their 2016 Opera Workshop with Stephen Sondheim’s 19th century romantic waltz-based operetta/musical, “A Little Night Music!”
Clive Barnes in the New York Times called the musical “heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting.”
The Telegraph wrote that “Sondheim’s lyrics are often superbly witty, his music here, mostly in haunting waltz-time, far more accessible than is sometimes the case. The score positively throbs with love, regret and desire.”
Winner of a Tony for Best Musical and Best Musical Score!
Sondheim creates a stunning tour de force when he takes Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, and turns it into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Musical Score, this is a musical work that has forever entranced the world of theatre.
Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik’s town, the estranged lovers’ passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée, Fredrik, Fredrick’s wife, Anne, Desirée’s current lover, the Count, and the Count’s wife, Charlotte. Both men — as well as their jealous wives — agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée’s mother’s estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.
A Little Night Music is full of hilarity, witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire. This dramatic musical celebration of love is perfect to showcase our talented cast of singers and actors, with it’s harmonically-advanced score and masterful orchestrations. And, it contains Sondheim’s popular song, the haunting “Send in the Clowns.”
