"Life is for the alive, my dear."
The Demon Barber of Fleet Street pays a visit to CU Boulder for the first time ever! Stephen Sondheim's wildly popular musical transports audiences to Victorian London, where a long-exiled haircutter and a struggling baker conspire for revenge ... and delicious meat pies.
"Sweeney Todd" is presented by the Eklund Opera Program with members of the CU Symphony in the Macky Auditorium pit orchestra. CU College of Music Faculty and students are joined by guest conductor Caleb Harris and guest vocalist Wei Wu. With lavish scenery and spine-tingling musicianship in CU's stunning Macky Auditorium, join Eklund Opera for a show you will be talking about all year.
This production contains scenes of simulated violence and simulated sexual assault.
