Northern Ireland Opera presents Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods at the Lyric, Belfast, directed by Cameron Menzies

Stephen Sondheim: Into the Woods - Northern Ireland Opera

Northern Ireland Opera has presented a series of highly successful music theatre productions at the Lyric theatre, Belfast, including The Threepenny Opera (2018), Sweeney Todd (2019) and Kiss me Kate (2020), and in 2022 the company will be returning to the Lyric with Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods.

The new production will be directed by Cameron Menzies, the company's artistic director, and this will be only his second live production with the company since taking over as artistic director in 2020. Menzies staged Puccini's La Boheme with the company at Belfast’s Carlisle Memorial Church in September 2021.

The performers in the production will be a mix of local talent with West End performers, some originally from Northern Ireland and making long-awaited debut performances back home.

Northern Ireland Opera's production of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods will be directed by Cameron Menzies, designed by Niall McKeever and choreographed by Jennifer Rooney, and the show runs from 3 to 27 February 2021 at the Lyric, Belfast. Full details from the theatre's website.
