Since its Broadway premiere in 1973, Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music has moved audiences around the world. The lives, loves, and regrets of couples gathered on a Swedish summer’s eve in the country reveal themselves through Sondheim’s complex music and elegant lyrics. From Opera Roanoke’s opening Night Waltz to Desiree’s poignant Send In the Clowns, we are swept up in their passions and desires. Clive Barnes, in his New York Times review of the original Broadway production, called the musical “heady, civilized, sophisticated, and enchanting… an orgy of plaintively memorable waltzes, all talking of past loves and lost worlds.”
