Georgia State University Opera Theater presents its spring production of Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning A Little Night Music on April 13, 14, and 15, 2018. Based on Ingmar Bergman’s movie Smiles of a Summer Night, this classic musical weaves tales of romance with lush melodies to create one unforgettable weekend in the country.
Set in Sweden at the turn of the century, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of love affairs surrounding actress Desiree Armfeldt, the men who love her, and the women who, in turn, love them. Once all parties eventually gather at Desiree’s mother’s estate, the twists and turns of these many trysts never fail to delight and surprise. With a rich musical score that includes the beloved song “Send in the Clowns,” A Little Night Music tells a story of love, desire, regret, nostalgia, and the magic of a summer evening where anything can happen.
Celebrating its 45th anniversary this season, A Little Night Music is directed by Carroll Freeman, musically directed by Brian Osborne, and conducted by Logan Souther. Featuring performances by members of the Georgia State University Opera Theater and the Georgia State University Opera Orchestra.
GSU Opera Theater’s production of A Little Night Music will be presented at the Rialto Center. For ticket information, please contact the Rialto Box Office at 404-413-9TIX.
