Todd May 31 and June 1 in Moscow
Todd — not saccharine musical entertainment "at one time with the popcorn." It's a completely different reading of the old London legend. In domestic versions of the story hamlet's rise the eternal questions and not in earnest ignite Shakespearean passions — here it is necessary to think and empathize! The plot of the musical went to the spooky London history XIIV century Barber (Barber, Barber) Sweeney Todd.
Todd is a story of betrayal, love, passion, loyalty, destruction, truth and lies, revenge, retribution and hope.
For several eras mysterious and dark character of Sweeney Todd, about the reality which historians still argue, inspires artists to create literary works, films and performances. Among them the famous Royal Opera House in London and The New York City Opera. Based on the same legend in Hollywood filmed the Oscar-winning Thriller with johnny Depp in the title role.
Now in its seventh season, the show held in full halls in Moscow and St. Petersburg, attracting again and again both new and regular viewers. Drama is so versatile that carries rock to watch the musical again and again, each time forcing the viewer to make new discoveries.
Definitely, the show has the magic of attraction, and its worth seeing at least once with my own eyes.
