In March, you will have a rare opportunity to experience a live performance of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

Equally at home on Broadway and on major opera stages worldwide, this darkly comic thriller tells a richly textured story of the abuse of power, revenge, and the redeeming power of love.

If you only know this work from the movie adaptation, you’re in for a revelation. See it live!

Audiences Loved
“The Elixir of Love”

Our season opened New Year’s Eve with Donizetti’s sparkling popular comedy The Elixir of Love. Reviewer Bob Keefer called it “a potent, ravishing Elixir” in Eugene Art TalkThe Register-Guard said “Charm and comedy fill Elixir stage.” Heather Holmquest’s review praised the performers for “comedic gold,” “impeccable control and expression,” and being “incredibly enjoyable to watch.”

Audience members said:

“Voices, sets, costumes, acting ability, enthusiasm of the performers and the audience, music and direction — it was all high-energy and high-spirited.”
“The story Elixir was easy to follow — who needs to know Italian to understand the story?”
“The most beautiful Una furtiva lagrima I’ve ever heard.”
“Love the soprano!”
“I thought the overall quality of the performance was one of the best ever. I thought Marco played his role to perfection.”
“The acting and the singing were both superb. The sets were very imaginative and the staging was terrific. AND, Harry Baechtel and Sarah Kim were completely equal to the other main roles. Their singing, acting, and presence was just fabulous. Eugene can be very proud of all aspects of this performance.”
