An excellent review of Sweeney Todd and in particular, Bryn's outstanding performance:

Hi, Jools,

This has been my favorite review so far!

I have the DVD of the San Francisco concert version of Sweeney Todd with Patti LuPone and George Hearn. There is a documentary that is on the DVD also. One of the persons in the documentary talked about Bryn Terfel being scheduled to be in Sweeney Todd in New York with Patti LuPone and that he had to cancel because he injured his back at Covent Garden. Several people on the documentary were so high in their praise of Bryn....said he is the greatest baritone in the world. (I know! He is a bass-baritone..LOL) George Hearn who replaced Bryn was high in his praise for Bryn and was a bit reluctant to sing the role. He said that he had friends from Rome and other "far away" places who were coming to New York to see Bryn and Patti LuPone in Sweeney Todd. Stephen Sondheim speaks on the documentary. He says there has been a question as to whether Sweeney Todd is an opera or musical. He said that he would describe it as a "dark" operetta.
