      Virginia Opera Series Sweeney Todd

      The cautionary tale of Sweeney Todd—a barber unjustly imprisoned by a corrupt judge—is gleefully dark entertainment. Todd returns to London, mad with revenge after his incarceration, and promptly slits the throats of the unlucky customers who enter his barbershop. But what to do with those pesky bodies? Enter Mrs. Lovett—his neighbor with a very secret recipe. Their gruesome plan seems to work... until things take a turn for the domestic and the Demon Barber's past catches up to him.

      Stephen Sondheim wrote the tuneful music and witty lyrics for this Tony Award-winning thriller. Director Ron Daniels, the original co-author of the stage adaptation that inspired the musical, is in his prime with this "killer production"1 that features "the best of both opera and Broadway worlds."2
