Virginia Opera’s 40th season opens with Sondheim’s hit and Tony Award-winning musical thriller about revenge, murder, and meat pies. This is the deliciously disturbing tale of Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street whose idyllic life was utterly destroyed by a corrupt and lecherous judge. Bitter and angry, Todd teams up with shop owner Mrs. Lovett to gratify his insatiable need for revenge while providing her with a steady supply of meat for her thriving pie business. Their gruesome scheme works — until Todd’s past catches up to him. Performed in English with English supertitles.
