Stephen Sondheim's Broadway masterpiece, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a musical thriller of romance and revenge set in Victorian England. The work premiered to unanimous critical and audience acclaim in 1979. In July of 2001, the concert edition of SWEENEY was presented at San Francisco's famed Davies Symphony Hall, again with Patti Lupone and George Hearn starring. The world-class San Francisco Symphony, under the direction of Rob Fisher, provided the accompaniment for this powerful, sold-out concert. This magnificent performance has been captured in its entirety on video with stunning clarity and rich multichannel sound.
