Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel to Bring Sweeney Todd To ENO in 2015


It was confirmed today that International opera star Bryn Terfel and Academy Award-winning actress Emma Thompson will reprise their roles as Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett in Stephen Sondheim’s gloriously gruesome musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street for a limited season at the London Coliseum in early 2015.

Following critically-acclaimed performances at New York’s Lincoln Center earlier this year, this sell-out staging comes to ENO  with just 13 performances from 30 March – 12 April. Sweeney Todd will be the first production in a major new long-term partnership between ENO and The GradeLinnit Company.

Sweeney Todd will be directed by Lonny Price and under the musical direction of David Charles Abel with further casting to be announced.

Speaking ahead of today’s press announcement, Emma Thompson said: ‘I can’t believe I am being given the opportunity to perform this extraordinary piece once again – this time with the ENO orchestra.  And of course to sing with such a talent as Bryn is as good as it ever gets.’

Sweeney Todd priority booking is now open for ENO Opera Circle patrons. To make sure you secure the best seats, become an ENO Friend today and enjoy priority booking from Friday 19 September.

Public booking opens Tuesday 23 September from 10am. Tickets for Sweeney Todd are priced from £10 – £125, with 300 seats available at £10 for every performance.
