Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of the final seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The beloved musical dramatizes Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, the unrest caused by his preaching and popularity, his betrayal by Judas, the trial before Pontius Pilate and his ultimate crucifixion. Perpetually changing the face of musical theater, Jesus Christ Superstar has left untold audiences captivated by its power since it debuted in 1971.
As relevant and timeless as ever, Jesus Christ Superstar the rock opera vision of "the greatest story ever told," is perhaps more potent in today's troubled world than when it was first produced. Now, for the new millennium, this magnificent story comes once again vividly to the stage with Ted Neeley re-creating his unforgettable performance in the title role.
