“Distinctive turn-of-the-century character… graceful choreography”

“...Night Music does have its charms, among them the flowing waltzes that give it a distinctive turn-of-the-century character and a sense of unity. Mr. Sondheim has developed a sophisticated theater style that transfers fairly easily to the opera stage. The full stage area was used for Susan Stroman's graceful choreography of dance interludes and for the hubbub of ensemble numbers like 'A Weekend in the Country,' all played against Michael Anania's handsomely simple, blue-green backdrops.”
