Based on countless serial novels that gripped Londoners during the Victorian era – the more gruesome the better – a barber wrongfully jailed by a corrupt judge returns to nineteenth century London to seek vengeance in Stephen Sondheim’s macabre musical comedy. A mix of intense ballads and music-hall comedy that turns this sordid and bloody tale into riveting entertainment, Sweeney Todd is widely recognized as one of the greatest scores written for the modern American lyric stage.
Experience this legendary musical comedy like never before: in the full operatic setting many believe this piece deserves – high quality singing and no amplified sound!
