Concept Players present A Little Night Music

A Little Night Music
is a gentle farce centred around a lawyer, Fredrick Egerman, and the loves in his life. His marriage to the beautiful Anne is still unconsummated and so onto the scene comes his old flame Desiree Arnfeldt, the glamorous actress. When Desiree invites Frederick and his family to her mother's country estate, all their Edwardian manners are tested to the full in this witty, funny and often poignant tale of love and desire.

Stephen Sondheim is one of, if not the, greatest living musical composers whose other successes include Company, Sweeney Todd, Into The Woods and A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, not to mention his contribution as lyricist to Gypsy and West Side Story amongst others. The sweeping score is unusual as it is nearly all in waltz time, suggesting a myriad of possible love triangles between the people on stage. Moving and lyrical, it is probably best known for the achingly beautiful ballad Send In The Clowns.
