Trivia
Several changes were made in adapting the stage version of' A Little Night Music' for the screen. At least four songs were deleted. Two songs ('The Glamorous Life' and 'Night Waltz') were entirely rewritten and reinterpreted. The Greek-chorus singing quintet was removed. Arguably, the most important change was setting the story in Austria instead of Sweden (which was not only the setting of the stage musical but also the setting of the Ingmar Bergman film that is its source material). This change in setting also slightly changed some character's names. Fredrik, Fredrika, and Henrik were altered to be Fredrick, Fredricka, and Erich, respectively. Also, the last name of the Count and Charlotte was changed from Malcolm to Mittelheim.
