Description

There never has been a weekend in the country quite like this, as loves are lost, found, yearned for and sent packing to the tune of some of the most breathtaking songs ever written, including the classic “Send in the Clowns.” Sophisticated and stylish, this musical based on Ingmar Bergman’s “Smiles of a Summer Night” abounds with wit as romantic liaisons are played out beneath the mysterious night lights of Sweden at the turn of the century.
