A Little Night Music by Hugh WheelerSet in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress, Desiree Armfeldt, and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredriks town, the estranged lovers passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desiree; Fredrik; Fredricks wife, Anne; Desirees current lover, the Count; and the Counts wife, Charlotte. Both men – as well as their jealous wives – agree to join Desiree and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirees mothers estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.

Sean Mathias's sublime Olivier staging of A Little Night Music restores one of the songs dropped from previous productions. She's just been ordered by her swaggering dragoon of a spouse to lend him a hand with his mistress problem by reporting on the other married man who is trying to muscle our hero out of his extra- marital bed. Could any self-respecting woman bring herself to love such a bastard? Well, yes. Very Sondheim, that, the pithiness with which she can pin down her perversity and still not scotch it and a welcome addition to the many memorable ways the characters in this piece lay bare the humiliating habits of the human heart. In his Diaries, Peter Hall recalls going to see the premiere and declares Night Music a dispiriting example of how musicals patronise their audiences. A visit now to his old stamping ground would quickly disabuse Sir Peter of his benighted notion.
