October 1994 – An Intoxicating Brew
For the first ten minutes of Barnes & Richmond Operatic Society’s A Little Night Music at Parkshot Studio last week, I was afraid it wasn’t going to work ‘in the round’. it wasn’t till later that I learned the reason for the uncertain opening was a backstage trauma.
But I needn’t have worried. Like a good vintage wine, John Hebden’s elegant production just got better and better. Sondheim’s heady brew of bitter-sweet music and lyrics written in 1974, still proved intoxicating twenty years on.
With overtones of La Ronde, as husbands, wives, mistresses and lovers interchange relationships as past and present collide, the show is more reminiscent of an operetta in waltz time than a musical, an effect heightened by a wry musical commentary on the action by the inspired ‘Liebeslieder’ quintet In The Glamorous Life, Remember? and The Sun Won’t Set.
