A modern classic
As one of the most popular operas that takes on a modern twist, Jesus Christ Superstar has been entertaining and enthralling audiences since its initial release back in 1970. The opera is based on the music of the multi-awarded British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, in collaboration with another multi-awarded British lyricist, Tim Rice. Jesus Christ Superstar’s story follows the biblical accounts of the last weeks of Jesus’ life as told in the gospels. The setting begins with Jesus and his disciples’ entry to Jerusalem and ends with Jesus’ death at the crucifix. The story also further explores the lives of the individual characters and the roles that they play before Jesus’ death. Despite having met with various controversies due to its sensitive religious theme, Jesus Christ Superstar eventually became one of the highest grossing and most popular operas worldwide. It has been produced in different countries and even had a movie adaptation in 1973 released by Universal Studios. Among the most favourite song numbers in the opera are ‘King Herod’s Song’, ‘I Don’t Know How to Love Him’, and ‘This Jesus Must Die’.
