A Little Night Music with YMTC +

POSTPONED to Spring 2021

music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

book by Hugh Wheeler

Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick

Suggested by a Film by Ingmar Bergman

Originally Produced and DIrected on Broadway by Harold Prince

A YMTC+ production

A Little Night Music, Sondheim’s sultry, lusty love story set in 1900 Sweden during a weekend in the country, is a sharp, witty musical that, in true farcical form, follows a group of characters of different ages who fall in love with all the wrong people, but eventually end up with their perfect matches.

The score for A Little Night Music was composed in almost entirely three quarter time--making the entire score like a waltz—and includes the popular song “Send in the Clowns.” Winner (1973) of 6 Tony Awards (including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score), 4 Drama Desk Awards (including Outstanding Book, Lyrics and Music), and a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.

YMTC + is an exciting new area of growth for YMTC, producing professional shows featuring YMTC alumni, and other local professional singing actors, working alongside our students, mentoring them on stage and off. Learn more.

"Many people think of the harp as an ethereal unicorn, but it's really not. Yes, it's a big scary looking instrument, but it's no less intimidating than the piano or the violin. My goal is to shatter the idea that nobody plays the harp anymore."

"I truly believe that anyone can learn to play the harp."

"The harp is my passion and I love to share it with anyone and everyone."
