More About Jesus Christ Superstar the Musical - A Modern Passion Play
Created in 1969, the show was originally a concept album written and produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Employing musicians from Deep Purple and Roxy Music amongst others, it was heavily influenced by the sound of the decade, lacing grandiose rock opera with streaks of synthesisers and powerful falsettos.
Seen as controversial amongst various religious groups, the piece is loosely based on the Bible's Passion Play and follows Jesus' last days. Focusing on the psychology behind Judas' betrayal, Rice's lyrics are infused with slang and written in a modern tone, allowing the audience to connect with the doubts and pain of the characters.
Having toured numerous countries, Jesus Christ Superstar the Musical has been staged in countless adaptations in both London's West End and elsewhere, with the 2012 version starring Melanie C and Tim Minchin serving as just one example.
