Behind the Music with Louis Rosen: Stephen Sondheim, American Modernist

Sweeney Todd — Sondheim and the Opera Impulse

The 1970’s were an extraordinarily fruitful creative period for Stephen Sondheim.

The decade climaxed with a stunning and surprising masterwork of music, lyrics, and theatrical invention: Sweeney Todd, the high-water mark of the Sondheim/Prince collaboration, and the most successful realization of the American impulse to blend the qualities of musical theater and opera since Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.
