This dark, Tony Award-winner for Best Musical by Stephen Sondheim has thrilled opera audiences across the nation. Leading an all-star cast are two of Omaha’s most dynamic and acclaimed artists, Conductor Hal France (Opera Omaha’s Artistic Director from 1995-2005) and Director Susan Clement (Producing Artistic Director, BLUEBARN Theatre), making her Opera Omaha debut.

Sweeney Todd, whose real name is Benjamin Barker, uses his new alias to resume work in his barber shop above Mrs. Lovett’s struggling pie shop after being wrongfully sentenced to life imprisonment by the corrupt Judge Turpin. After swearing vengeance against the judge that tore his family apart, Todd and Lovett plot a unique plan that helps them both and leads them down a dangerous, thrilling path with deadly consequences. This all-star cast features Zachary James in the title role of Sweeney Todd and Emily Pulley (2019 Faust, 2002 Carmen, 2000 Falstaff), returning to Opera Omaha in the role of Nellie Lovett.
