North West Opera
Not for the faint-hearted and definitely unsuitable for young children!
“Popping people into pies”, shaving competitions and a “Miracle elixir” for balding men, are part and parcel of the black comedy, Sweeney Todd.
Serving up “A little Priest” or “Shepherd’s pie, peppered with actual shepherd”, Sweeney and Mrs Lovett plan the disposal of the bodies of those he will send to their deaths!
A corrupt and lusty Judge, A barber who seeks revenge and a Pie-maker who loves him – a match made in hell!
