A Little Night Music
Sweden, c 1900
Sondheim's musical in three-quarter time is a sophisticated romantic comedy with a bit of a saucy edge and full of wit.
Middle-aged lawyer Fredrik Egerman has married for the second time. His new wife, Anne, a child of 18 is the same age as his son Henrik. Fredrik visits actress Desiree Armfeldt, a former lover and the father of her illegitimate teenaged daughter, Fredrika. Desiree, however, is involved with another married man, Carl-Magnus. The love triangles become untangled and everything ends up as it should be during a weekend retreat at Desiree’s mother’s chateau (“A Weekend in the Country”).
