Birmingham students perform Sondheim's A Little Night Music for Summer Festival of Music

The student-led Summer Festival Opera presented an exciting staging of Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music this month in the Barber Institute of Fine Arts. 

With performances from Friday 14 to Sunday 16 June 2019, students from a breadth of academic disciplines at the university came together to present this tour-de-force of wit, charm, and romance, set to a luscious romantic score.
