Academy Award-winning actress Emma Thompson and international star Bryn Terfel reprise their roles as Mrs Lovett and Sweeney Todd in this concert staging of Stephen Sondheim’s gloriously gruesome musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

Find out the macabre secret behind Mrs Lovett’s irresistibly delicious pies when this acclaimed staging comes to ENO in spring 2015, following sell-out performances at New York’s Lincoln Center.

English National Opera is thrilled to celebrate Sondheim’s 85th birthday with this thrilling semi-staged production of one of his most popular works.

Performed by an all-star cast and showcasing some of the composer’s most memorable melodies, this grisly entertaining tale at the London Coliseum is not to be missed!

Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a 1979 musical thriller with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and libretto by Hugh Wheeler. The musical is based on the 1973 play Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Christopher Bond.
