Sondheim is a twelve-week course covering the full career of Stephen Sondheim, including his nineteen stage musicals and one television musical.  Students will listen to most of the available cast albums; they will also watch those productions which have been filmed and are available online (not movie musicals but filmed stage productions), including Evening PrimroseCompany, Sweeney Todd, Pacific Overtures, and Sunday in the Park with George.  The thesis of Sondheim is the titular artist's reconciliation of the musical comedy and opera forms; his finally creating, in other words, the truly American musical drama.
