This stirring rock opera from the perspective of Judas Iscariot follows Jesus Christ during his last seven days on Earth. With material borrowed from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, this musical follows the meteoric rise of Jesus’ popularity, the devotion and doubts of his disciples, and the radical response by the church priests. Jesus Christ Superstar was the first of the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice tradition of recording an album first and then creating a musical from it. Composer Webber won the Drama Desk Award for Most Promising Composer in 1972 and Jesus Christ Superstar was also Tony-nominated for Best Original Score.
