Sweeney Todd opens in Belfast

5 Feb 2019

The Lyric Theatre and Northern Ireland Opera welcome the Demon Barber to Belfast for a three-week run. Starring Steven Page as Sweeney, Julie Mullins as Mrs Lovett and Jack Wolfe as Tobias, this new professional production is directed by Walter Sutcliffe and runs from 2nd to 23rd of February. 

 

 

To book, visit the Lyric Theatre, where tickets start at £15 (previews), £17 (off-peak) and £24 (Fri/Sat evenings).

 

From Belfast Live: Julie Mullins, best known for playing Julie Martin in Neighbours from 1985 to 1992, will take on the role of Mrs Lovett beside Steven Page, who appeared alongside Ralph Fiennes in Oedipus at the National Theatre, as Sweeney Todd.

 

Julie said: "I am very excited to be in Belfast for this co-production between Northern Ireland Opera and the Lyric Theatre, because not only do I get to work with these respected companies but I get to play one of the best parts for an actress-singer in the mighty Sondheim repertoire! I can’t wait to get started. And I’m delighted to say Belfast is giving me a wonderfully warm welcome, thank you."

 

As has become expected from Northern Ireland Opera’s director Walter Sutcliffe and designer Dorota Karolczak, the production will have a blend of modern, Victorian and steam punk influences, which will challenge the audience to re-think their ideas on the piece...
