Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd

July 19 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sweeney Todd was the rage of Broadway when it premiered, winning eight Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score. In the years since, it has migrated to the world’s opera houses, thanks to its thrilling score – full of magnificent solos and sophisticated ensembles – and its larger-than-life characters. Exactly twenty-five seasons ago, DMMO was on the vanguard of opera companys presenting this intriguing musical thriller as part of the 1995 Summer Festival Season. Des Moines Metro Opera’s new production will be led by the Marshall and Judy Flapan Principal Conductor and Music Director David Neely and stage director Kristine McIntyre. Baritone Zachary Nelson and mezzo-soprano Lucy Schaufer make DMMO debuts as Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett, respectively.

Steven Sondheim’s musical thriller is the diabolical counterpoint to his A Little Night Music, a DMMO hit in 2017. Miss it at your own peril!
