Sweeney Todd, Peter Jöback, Phantom of the opera, Fredrik Swahn

Opera sells £1 million worth of tickets in a week

Our mole in the box-office at English National Opera has collapsed with exhaustion. The phones won’t stop ringing, the internet link’s in meltdown and the bank has been asking if the money is clean. What has brought on this rush? Sweeney Todd. That’s what. Not an opera, to be sure, but a stage musical that is now performed so regularly in opera houses that it may well be changing genre. Be that as it may, for any single work to sell close to £1 million in an opera house less than a week must be some kind of world record.
