It's been a long time since I saw this, but I recall it being absolutely mesmerizing. I expected Sally Ann Howes to be good, and she didn't disappoint. But Regina Resnik was, again, as I recall, stupendous! I had it on VHS for a while, but it eventually disappeared in a move.
So far as I know, this was broadcast live, never repeated, and never released commercially on video. I seem to recall something about Sondheim not being willing to release video rights, and a lot of contractual hurdles with NYCO. But I might be wrong about that.
As these things tend to go, I wouldn't be surprised if it was long ago destroyed.
What a shame. I think it just might have been the definitive "A Little Night Music".
