Opera and Lyric Theatre at Ohio State University's School of Music presents this Stephen Sondheim masterwork, an eight-time Tony Award-winning play in 1979. Subtitled "The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," the play is a darkly comic and intensely dramatic musical thriller - the composer himself called it a "black operetta." The title character's deadly descent into vengeful obsession is set to Sondheim's most complex and challenging score.
