THEATRE: Sweeney Todd
The much anticipated production of Stephen Sondheim’s musical, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street- is showing at the English National Opera this weekend.
In this ghoulish thriller, Byrn Terfel stars as the bloodthirsty barber, whose desire for vengeance for being deported wreaks havoc across 19th century London. With partner–in- crime Mrs Lovett (ELLE- favourite Emma Thompson), he slits victims’ throats before cooking the chopped-up bodies in meat pies to sell in her shop. Delightful.
If you're on the front rows, watch out for stray flakes of pastry flung your way.
