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’ meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.
Recommended for age 12 and above. Particulate matter will be used.
