A rock opera for the ages, this ground-breaking work by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice examines the last days of Jesus Christ through a decidedly contemporary lens. The zeal with which Christâ€™s followers are hailing him as the Son of God becomes a source of dismay to his disciple Judas Iscariot. Fearing that this tide of religious fervor will provoke brutal repression by the occupying Romans, Judas must make his fateful choice between faith and betrayal. The critically acclaimed score includes Heaven on Their Minds, I Donâ€™t Know How to Love Him, Whatâ€™s the Buzz, Herodâ€™s Song, and Superstar.
