      EVENT DETAILS
      Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

      Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is Stephen Sondheim's chilling masterpiece of murderous "barber-ism," vengeance, and culinary crime. Considered by musicologists to be Sondheim's greatest work, this production features Sweeney Todd and a resourceful pie shop proprietress who have customers clamoring for their mysterious new meat pies-blissfully ignorant of the creation process and the recipe. It tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him. Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with funny moments of dark humor. Audiences find themselves laughing one moment and gasping in surprise the next.

      ProMusica's innovative performance is conceptually staged, with costumes, props, and platforms surrounding and throughout the orchestra during the entire performance. The mood is further enhanced by dramatic, intense lighting that augments the beautiful and haunting music. This performance is made possible, in part, through assistance from the Scottsdale Cultural Council.
