Schon im Zuge ihrer Zusammenarbeit bei der West Side Story¬†hatten sich der Regisseur und Produzent Harold Prince sowie der Komponist und Texter Stephen Sondheim mit der Frage beschaftigt, ob es moglich ware, ein Musical komplett im ¬ĺ-Takt zu schreiben. In Ingmar Bergmans Film DAS L√ĄCHELN EINER SOMMERNACHT¬†fanden sie Jahre spater den idealen Stoff fur dieses Vorhaben - und das Experiment gelang! Eingebettet in das Formkorsett des Walzertaktes und mit je einer Prise Shakespeare, Tschechow und Strindberg gewurzt, gelang Sondheim und seinem Buchautoren Hugh Wheeler mit dem poetischen, im Schweden um die Jahrhundertwende angesiedelten Liebesreigen schlie√ülich ein melancholisch-faszinierendes Kammermusical, das seit seiner Urauffuhrung 1973 am New Yorker Broadway die Buhnen der Welt im Sturm eroberte.
