A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless rock opera set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.

The iconic 1970s rock score contains such well-known numbers as “Superstar,” “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Gethsemane.” This musical classic illuminates the transcendant  power the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the soul.


“It’s a bravura performance, emotionally moving and often vocally spectacular.” – The Buzz

“The spectacle, the energy, the power of this thing. It’s an unforgiving show. It hits you in your thinker, but it affects you on a primal level.” – The Guardian
