VIDEO: First Look at A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC in Paris


Greta Scacchi and Leslie Caron lead the cast of the Théâtre du Châtele's production of Hugh Wheeler and Stephen Sondheim's A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC in Paris, which opened last night, February 15. Scacchi plays prominent actress Desiree Armfeldt and Caron stars as Madame Armfeldt. The production will be directed by Lee Blakeley. BroadwayWorld brings you a first look at the production below.

Based on Ingmar Bergman's film Smiles of a Summer Night, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is set in a weekend country house in turn of the century Sweden, bringing together surprising liaisons, long simmering passions and a taste of love's endless possibilities. Hailed as witty and wildly romantic, the story centers on the elegant actress Desirée Armfeldt and the spider's web of sensuality, intrigue and desire that surrounds her.

A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC - featuring a score by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler - originally opened in 1973 at Broadway's Shubert Theatre and ran for 601 performances. Produced and directed by Harold Prince, the production garnered six Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score. The Sondheim score features one of the composer's best-known songs, "Send in the Clowns," as well as "Every Day a Little Death," "The Miller's Son" and "A Weekend in the Country."
