Jesus Christ Superstar
Jesus Christ Superstar is the rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice now celebrating its 50th anniversary. For many, this dramatic opera was their first exposure to theatre. The musical is a dramatization of the last week of the life of Jesus Christ, beginning with his entry into Jerusalem and ending with the Crucifixion as seen through the eyes of Judas and the interaction between Jesus, his disciples, Pontius Pilate and Herod. Reflecting the rock roots that defined a generation, the legendary score includes ‘I Don’t Know How to Love Him’, ‘Gethsemane’ and ‘Superstar”.
