Fully Staged Production of ‘A Little Night Music’ on Aug. 26 & 27 and Important Message from Aaron

From the team that brought you ‘The Sound of Music’ last season comes a thrilling stage performance of Stephen Sondheim’s romantic comedy, A Little Night Music on Saturday, August 26th in Satellite Beach and Sunday, August 27th in Vero Beach.

Stage director Eric Pinder will lead an incredible cast of twenty performers in this piece that asks, what happens to love when it is tarnished by time and man’s foolishness? He shares his excitement, “This is one of my all-time favorite musicals. It has not been produced in Central Florida in over a decade and even then, not with a full orchestra. This will be a performance not to be missed!” Pinder will be joined by music director and Grammy award winner Dr. Jeffrey Redding, choreographer Rebekah Lane, both making their company debut, and all under the direction of SCSO conductor, Aaron Collins.

As Pinder notes above, Sondheim’s score will be embodied in its fullness by Space Coast Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of conductor Aaron Collins. This production will mark the sixth collaboration between Central Florida Vocal Arts and Space Coast Symphony, and the fourth collaboration between Pinder and Collins.

Set 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 Fredrik’s town, the estranged lovers’ passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée; Fredrik; Fredrick’s wife, Anne; Desirée’s current lover, the Count; and the Count’s wife, Charlotte. Both men – as well as their jealous wives – agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée’s mother’s estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.

A Little Night Music is full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire. This dramatic musical celebration of love is perfect to showcase the highly trained singers Central Florida Vocal Arts is known for with its harmonically advanced score and masterful orchestrations, and contains Sondheim’s popular song, the haunting “Send in the Clowns.”

A Little Night Music‘s cast will feature the finest performers for which CFVA has become known, including beloved actors from recent productions of The Secret Garden and The Sound of Music, alongside performers making their company debut. And like The Secret Garden and The Sound of Music, this production is expected to sell out.

With a story that strikes a chord with lovers of all ages and a score that is simultaneously stunning and heartbreaking, A Little Night Music will certainly be the perfect date where the voice will take center stage!
