The greatest story ever told. The most famous rock opera of all time. With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jesus Christ Superstar is loosely based on the Gospel's account of the last week in the life of Jesus of Nazareth, beginning with his arrival into Jerusalem and ending with the Crucifixion. Here, the myth is stripped from the man to reveal an all-too-human soul, troubled and doubting, the fickle nature of those closest to him, the whims of those who judge him, the heartache of a woman who loves him and the motives of the man who ultimately betrays him.
First staged on Broadway in 1971, Jesus Christ Superstar is an immortal of musical theatre. Audiences around the globe have thrilled to its unforgettable soundtrack with songs such as "Everything's Alright", "I Don't Know How to Love Him" and the iconic signature tune. With a contemporary, urban, twenty-first-century re-staging, Auckland Theatre Company's Jesus Christ Superstar promises an up close and personal experience like no other and an inspirational finale to the year. Transcendent.
