Emma Thompson leads ENO Sweeney Todd Emma Thompson will return to the London stage for the first time in 25 years to star alongside Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel in musical thriller Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street at the London Coliseum next year.

The much rumoured casting was confirmed today at the home of the English National Opera where the production will play from 30 March (press night 31 March) to 12 April.

Directed by Lonny Price, Sweeney Todd’s London run follows the production’s premiere at New York’s Lincoln Center earlier this year where Thompson and Terfel first played the role of the demon barber and his pie-making sidekick.

Set in Victorian London, the Stephen Sondheim musical charts the story of the eponymous barber as he seeks vengeance on what he views as a merciless world by murdering his customers and baking them into pastry cases with the help of his landlady.

Best known for her starring roles in numerous films including Howards End, Saving Mr Banks, Sense And Sensibility and the Harry Potter series, Thompson was last seen in the West End in Judi Dench’s 1989 production of Look Back In Anger. Talking about her forthcoming return to the London stage, the Academy Award-winning actress said: “I can't believe I am being given the opportunity to perform this extraordinary piece once again – this time with the ENO orchestra. And of course to sing with such a talent as Bryn is as good as it ever gets.”...
