Northern Ireland Opera and the Lyric Theatre present Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

The Lyric Theatre and Northern Ireland Opera bring you Sondheim’s musical thriller about the infamous boogeyman of Victorian London. A gentlemanly barber who, seeking revenge for his wrongful incarceration and the tragic loss of his family, returns to London as the murderous Sweeney Todd.

His personal quest for vengeance becomes a bloodthirsty and insatiable vendetta against humanity as he lures the people of London into his lethal barber shop while his sinister landlady Mrs Lovett bakes their remains into gourmet pies.

Is Sweeney a one-man horror show, the victim of a corrupt society, or a gruesome source of entertainment for audiences to this dark and deadly spectacle?
