A Little Night Music is the enchanting story of three couples and their romantic machinations, set during the magical and romantic midsummer of Sweden at the turn of the last century. The story of the play unfolds through the eyes of the young and the memories of the old. The show employs an affectionate nod to the operetta style, blending witty and urbane dialogue with beguiling melodies. The proceedings are both manipulated and reflected on by a quintet of singers serving as a Greek chorus of sorts, sometimes participating in the action while offering commentary on the white lies, false witness and little treacheries of the lovers throughout the story. This exquisite blend of theatre and music styles provides an enchanting adventure as it explores the themes of lost loves, the yearning of the young, the sometimes foolishness of re-discovered middle-aged love and the gilded memories of the old. Accomplished stage director Dennis Lickteig directs his first show with Lamplighters since becoming Lamplighters’ Artistic Director.
