A Little Night Music

On Monday evening A Little Night Music had a rehearsal at St John’s College, and I joined them with my camera to take a few photos. The first act started out quite seriously, with everyone being focused, but as the night grew late, lots of funny little moments happened.

From Camdram:

“Isn’t it rich? Are we a pair? Me here at last on the ground, you in mid-air. Send in the clowns”

Desiree Armfeldt, the renowned actress, finds herself caught once more in a tangled set of affairs – sleeping with the Count Carl-Magnus (in full knowledge of his wife) while falling in love once more with her old flame, Fredrik Egerman (despite the fact that he is also newly married). How better to solve this problem than a weekend in the country together?

Sondheim’s classic musical, adapting an Ingmar Bergman film, brings together love in all its tragicomic forms in this nostalgic and farcical story. Reset in contemporary times, with the ghosts of the past watching on, this production of ‘A Little Night Music’ will demonstrate just why Sondheim is one of the revered greats of musical theatre.
