Jesus Christ Superstar
In the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar Judas tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus in Jerusalem. The story is about Mary Magdalene's love for Jesus, the Last Supper, King Herod's verdict and Judas' betrayal which in the end leads to Jesus' death. Webber's sweeping music (I Don't Know How to Love Him, Superstar, ...) still inspires the audience throughout the world - the rock opera was performed in 42 countries.
Concert performance with Drew Sarich
Drew Sarich assumes the role of Jesus, as he did a few times before. The orchestra of the United Stages of Vienna will play the music.
The cornerstone of the piece was laid in 1969 by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, who was only 21 years old at the time, with their single called "Superstar." By 1971 they had developed it into a rock opera that first came out as an album and then was performed, in July 1971, as a concert in Pittsburgh. In October 1971 it premiered in New York. This was followed by Universal's filming in 1982.
