A Little Night Music

Stephen Sondheim

This event has passed.

We regret to announce that due to the COVID-19 crisis our co-production of A Little Night Music with the Leeds Playhouse has had to be postponed. Our immediate priority is the health and safety of our audiences, artists and staff and though we hope to be able to mount the production in a future season at this point we cannot confirm when this will be.

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.
