WITH A LITTLE LIGHT MUSIC AT LEEDS PLAYHOUSE
| A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC – the latest collaboration by Leeds Playhouse and Opera North – reveal the glamorous lives of the hopelessly mismatched lovers in Stephen Sondheim’s witty and wonderful classic.
A chance meeting sparks a game of romantic musical chairs over a weekend in the country as a colourful menagerie of couples find themselves confronted by their own vanities and deceptions.
Glistening with wit and romance, Sondheim’s tantalising tale flirts with musical theatre and opera, and includes the classic songs ‘Send in the Clowns’, ‘Liaisons’ and ‘The Glamorous Life’.
This new production is the latest collaboration between Opera North and Leeds Playhouse following the critically acclaimed Into the Woods (2016). Dame Josephine Barstow stars as Madam Armfeldt, while Quirijn de Lang and Stephanie Corley, last seen together as sparring partners in Kiss Me, Kate, are Frederik and Desiree.
Featuring Opera North’s award-winning Chorus and directed by the Playhouse’s Artistic Director James Brining, expect a glorious evening that is heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure.
