The most musical of musicals.

If anyone can bridge the gap between opera and musicals, it is the incomparable Stephen Sondheim. With his characteristic wit and indelible musical talent comes the most musical of musicals, based on Ingmar Bergman’s 1955 film Smiles of a Summer Night.

The summer night smiles three times: first on the young, second on the fools and third on the old. Over the course of a weekend in the country, an entangled group of worldly characters rekindle lost love, court new liaisons, and flirt with romantic possibilities.

Capturing the uncertainties of love with playfulness and heartbreaking accuracy, A Little Night Music resonates with bittersweet wisdom, and speaks to us all. From the romance of the night waltzes to the wistful ‘Send in the Clowns’, music theatre lovers will rejoice the return of one of Sondheim’s most beloved and sophisticated musicals.

Get ready to fall in love with some magical night music as Victorian Opera welcomes a cast of musical theatre, cabaret and opera stars, headed by Ali McGregor, Simon Gleeson, Nancye Hayes, Samuel Dundas, Alinta Chidzey and Verity Hunt-Ballard.
