Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd-Webber
Jesus Christ Superstar is a phenomenon of musical theatre and the most famous rock opera of all time. Loosely based on the Gospel’s account of the last week in the life of Jesus of Nazareth, the story traces his journey from Jerusalem to the crucifixion. Jesus is presented as an all-too-human soul, troubled and doubting—as the story explores the character of his closest friends, a woman who loves him, those who judge him and the man who betrays him. After opening on Broadway in 1971, Superstar continues to touch audiences around the globe. Its legacy of unforgettable songs includes “Everything’s Alright,” “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” and the title song.
