Musical genius composer of a little night music
A Little Night Music by Hugh WheelerSet in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress, Desirée Armfeldt, and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredriks town, the estranged lovers passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée; Fredrik; Fredricks wife, Anne; Desirées current lover, the Count; and the Counts wife, Charlotte. Both men – as well as their jealous wives – agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirées mothers estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.
Of all the tributes bestowed on Stephen Sondheim, the most revealing is the birthday concert. A composer-lyricist, Sondheim, who turns 85 in March, writes his songs within a context at once dramatic and musical. Sondheim himself has no trouble finding overlap. What has been lost, in the Sondheim skirmishes, is a sense of proportion. To his admirers, overzealous in defence, Sondheim has become a writer of musicals that never — not for even a minute — repelled a thoughtful audience with ostentation in wordplay or desperation in rhyme, with underfed melodies or overworked parodies, with glibness or gloom. A reluctance to cheer equals a failure of discernment.
Yes, yes, there's a lot to look forward to in terms of new and new-ish operatic and music-theatrical marvels in the next few weeks and months up and down the country: The Rake's Progress at Scottish Opera , David McVicar's first production of Stravinsky's controversial masterpiece which opens tomorrow, there are exciting new shows at English National Opera, who are at last catching up with the rest of Europe and letting British audiences had the chance to see pieces by two of the most prolific and successful opera composers around, Detlev Glanert and Wolfgang Rihm ; and even if it hasn't gone down very well with the critics, there's Judith Weir's Miss Fortune at Covent Garden. Even better, Birmingham Opera Company stage their first new commission, Jonathan Dove's Life is a Dream on the 21st of March, and then start their engines to prepare for the world premiere of Stockhausen's Wednesday from Light "Mittwoch aus Licht", if you prefer the mysterious-sounding German , complete with its quartet of helicopters.
