This two-act concert features not only soloists and the full orchestra and chorale, but also innovative visual elements and traditional favorites.
ProMusica Arizona's Chorale & Orchestra along with professional artists in lead roles presented Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts on October 5th. Sondheim’s chilling masterpiece of murderous “barber-ism,” vengeance, and culinary crime is considered by musicologists to be Sondheim's greatest work. Sophisticated, macabre, and visceral, the cast of ProMusica Arizona's production of Sweeney Todd delivered an entertaining evening of fun, mixing intense drama with funny moments of dark humor.
