In turn of the century Sweden, lawyer Fredrik Egerman is married to 18-year-old Anne, who, although they have been married almost a year, is still a virgin. As a treat for her, he buys tickets to see the actress Desirée Armfeldt (an old flame) in a play. Later that night, in Desirée’s digs, the romance is rekindled. But Desirée has been having an affair with a jealous, military man, Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm, husband to the long-suffering Charlotte. And Fredrik’s son, Henrik, is in love with his stepmother Anne. What happens when they all converge at the grand estate of Desirée’s mother, Madame Armfeldt, for a weekend in the country? Humorous and heart breaking, A Little Night Music is a glorious waltz through the tangled web of romance as everybody searches for their perfect match.
