Jesus Christ Superstar

Loosely based on the Gospels, Superstar follows the last week of Jesus Christ’s life. It explores the personal relationships and struggles between Jesus, Judas, Mary Magdalene, his disciples, his followers and the Roman Empire. This rock opera is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.
