Sondheim at 85
Stephen Sondheim is a master, creator of the most startling, honest, inventive, witty, heartbreaking songs. His extraordinary music and lyrics are dazzlingly sophisticated and sardonic but equally sure-footed and devastating in nailing yearning and loss. Winner of eight Grammy Awards, eight Tony Awards, an Oscar, a Pulitzer Prize and a Laurence Olivier Award, he is simply the greatest artist in musical theatre. John Wilson, a world-class line-up of singers and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra salute a genius in his 85th year. More info.+More Information
