Jesus Christ Superstar at Welk Resorts Theatre

Share

Playing: May 20 – August 7, 2016

It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent ’60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus’ meteoric-like rise in renown provides a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship.

As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought provoking edge and explosive theatricality.

Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.

Music and lyrics by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER & TIM RICE
