Why See Michigan Opera Theatre - Sweeney Todd?



Step into the dark streets of Victorian London with the Michigan Opera Theatre as they present Stephen Sondheim's macabre masterpiece this winter. In typical Sondheim-ian style the story of the Demon Barber of Fleetstreet is laid bare and his grisly collaboration with pie shop owner Mrs Lovett exposed in classing songs including 'The Worst Pies in London' and 'Not While I'm Around'.

Debuting on Broadway in 1979, Sweeney Todd scooped up an incredible eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was later adapted for the screen by Tim Burton starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter in the leads. More recently it has seen various high-profile revivals on both Broadway and in London's West End, most notably Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel starring in the concert version at the Lincoln Center in 2014.

What is the story?

The legendary barber Sweeney Todd, hell-bent on revenge after being transported wrongly for murder, returns to London twenty years later and takes up with his neighbor, the enterprising meat pie-making Mrs Lovett in a gory plot to slice their way through London's elite. Justice will be served - along with lush melody, audacious humor and grisly thrills!
