A Little Night Music

Stephen Sondheim

Our co-production with Leeds Playhouse, starring Dame Josephine Barstow, Quirijn de Lang and Stephanie Corley, is back by popular demand.

A chance meeting between ex-lovers sparks a game of romantic musical chairs over a weekend in the country, as hopelessly mismatched couples find themselves confronted by their own vanities and deceptions.

Glistening with wit and romance, composer Sondheim’s tantalising tale flirts with musical theatre and opera, and includes the classic song Send in the Clowns.

Featuring members of the Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North, and directed by the Playhouse’s Artistic Director James Brining, expect a glorious evening that is heart-warming and heartbreaking in equal measure.
