Jesus Christ Superstar
By Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is perhaps the best known example of the musical genre known as Rock Opera. The first collaboration of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, who also partnered in the creation of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT and EVITA, makes its first appearance on The Masquers stage.
The SUPERSTAR story is a dramatic interpretation of the final days of Jesus, which centers on the relationship between Jesus and Judas. The feel of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is distinctly of its time - blazing guitar riffs, piercing vocals and powerful, throbbing orchestrations, along with many cultural influences from the late 60's and early 70's tossed in for good measure. It is a time capsule in many ways, yet remains entirely grand, glorious and thoroughly relevant to people of all times. It is electric in its delivery and emotional in its impact on audiences.
