Andrew Lloyd Webber partnering with lyricist Tim Rice to create this dazzling pop opera. Based on the New Testament’s account of the last days of Jesus, this unique opus underscores intense drama with exciting and electric melodies. As Jesus’ radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of his new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a driving score, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart."
