A Little Night Music

November 6-8, 13-15, 1998 – Fisher Theater, Ames

With a smile on its lips, flirtation in its eye and bittersweet melancholy in its heart, this lilting three-quarter time adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s film Smiles of a Summer Night waltzes into a turn-of-the-century Sweden suffused with love. It traces the myriad forms of desire from the tender blossoming of inexperience to the startled rekindling of long-forgotten passion. Centered on the middle-aged lawyer Fredrik Egerman–blessed with an innocent 18 year-old bride, an enchanting former mistress and many rivals in love–the plot, ever thickening, culminates in a weekend in a country chateau. The strands of love entwine; catching each muddled human and forming surprising new bonds. And the night smiles – for the very young, for the very foolish and for the very old.
