Sweeney Todd – Wellington Season

Sweeney Todd – Wellington Season, 30 septembre 2016 19:30, St. James Theatre, Wellington

Bringing this musical thriller to life, we are delighted to welcome back to our shores one of New Zealand’s most beloved operatic sons, Teddy Tahu Rhodes.

The haunted intensity of Teddy’s Sweeney meets its match in Antoinette Halloran’s seductively manipulative and very funny murderess, Mrs Lovett.

A co-production with Victorian Opera, Sweeney Todd is directed by NZ Opera’s General Director, Stuart Maunder, and Orchestra Wellington is conducted by Benjamin Northey. The sets and costumes are designed by Tony Award winner Roger Kirk.

Reviews have hailed this production as “magnificent”, “revelatory” and a “superb union of technical, musical and artistic balance”.

With just five performances in Wellington, opera and theatre fans alike are urged to book quickly for the production the Times Age reviewed as delivering “incisive theatricality and potent musicality.”
