A Little Night Music

Stephen Sondheim

26 Jun–17 Jul 2021

Book Now

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

This new production is the latest collaboration between Opera North and Leeds Playhouse following the critically acclaimed Into the Woods (2016).

Featuring Opera North favourites, the Company’s award-winning Chorus and directed by the Playhouse’s Artistic Director James Brining, expect a glorious evening that is heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure.
