Content & Development More Info

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR tells the last seven days of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem from the critical viewpoint of Judas. It is about the love of Mary Magdalene for Jesus, the Last Supper, the judgment of Herod and the betrayal of Judas, which leads to Jesus' way of the cross and finally to his death.

The then 25-year-old Tim Rice published together with the 21-year-old Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1969 in England and the US a single titled "Superstar". Until 1971, it developed into a rock opera, which first appeared as an album, then in concert in July 1971 in Pittsburgh and on October 12, 1971 in the Mark Hellinger Theater in New York premiered. From 1972 to 1981, there were 3,358 performances of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR in London's West End, followed a year later by Universal's film adaptation. The Austrian premiere took place in 1981 in the Theater an der Wien.
