JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR (CZE)

Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice: JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

Rock opera

The contemporary British author Andrew Lloyd Webber, called the "King of Musical", is the only world author who presented simultaneously three musicals on Broadway. Undoubtedly, one of the most famous which continues the tradition of rock operas is Jesus Christ Superstar from the year 1971.

The story comes out of the New Testament and depicts last seven days of Jesus Christ’s life from the viewpoint of Judas Iskariot who finally betrayed Jesus. The story is built on the main moments of Jesu’s last days such as his arrival to Jerusalem, expulsion of middlemen from the temple, Jesus’s last supper, Judas’s betrayal in the Garden of Gethseman, Pilate’s and Herod’s judgements, flogging and subsequent crucifixion.

Jesus Christ Superstar was a great success – it had more than 3350 repeats when it was introduced for the first time in London and it still belongs to the most frequently performed Webber’s works along with The Phantom of the Opera, Cats and Evita.
