ZURICH: Sweeney Todd
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Wednesday, January 2, 2019 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Featured Alumnus: David Charles Abell (MM' 85, Orchestral Conducting) Sweeney Todd is considered a musical, but the lushly orchestrated, highly structured score places the piece, which is inspired as much by classic Gothic fiction as horror films, in the proximity of grand opera. The title role thus demands not only an excellent actor capable of convincingly portraying the emotionally deeply wounded, bloodthirsty figure of Sweeny Todd, but also a great operatic voice with the darkest timbre. The Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, who has already been celebrated for the role at the English National Opera and the Lyric Opera Chicago, is ideally cast. Mrs. Lovett, who is prepared to do anything for love of Sweeney Todd, will be sung by the Austrian mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirschschlager. David Charles Abbell, a renowned specialist in musicals, will be at the rostrum of the Philharmonia Zurich. Andreas Homoki will be staging the macabre musical thriller, which came to fame not least through the film featuring Johnny Depp.

Check out our Alumni Video of the Month:

 

February 2019

This month’s video features the ensemble Conduit, comprised of alums Zach Manzi (BM ’15, clarinet) and Evan Saddler (MM ’18, percussion). About the film, they write:

Comfort Patterns explores the eeriness looming behind obsessive behaviors that digital technology elicits from human beings. The composer, Anna Meadors, indicates “with a quiet paranoia, obsessive” in the score, which is brought to life by repeated fragments that mutate throughout the piece. Current Juilliard dance student Taylor Massa’s choreography and presence in the ensemble augments the musical concept by bringing a visceral element to the obsessiveness. Comfort Patterns was produced and directed by Four/Ten Media, comprised of filmmakers Evan Chapman and Kevin Eikenberg.”
