Why See Lyric Opera - Jesus Christ Superstar?

Classical & Opera

Lyric Opera bring a brand new production to chicago!

This blistering landmark rock opera epic that launched Andrew Llyod Webber and Tim Rice to musical icon status comes makes its Lyric premiere in this award-winning production from London's West End. Following the final days of Christ through the eyes of his closest friend and greatest betrayer, Judas Iscariot. Fusing the biblical story with a soaring soundtrack full of rock, funk, folk and gospel, this blockbuster Broadway hit is recommended viewing for all fans of musical theatre!


TO CONQUER DEATH, YOU ONLY HAVE TO DIE: THE STORY OF JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

Beginning with the arrival of Jesus and his followers in Jerusalem, the story takes a new look at the struggles faced by both himself, and the infamous Judas Iscariot, using political themes and issues not explored in the Bible. Judas is seen here as more of a tragic antihero dissatisfied with how Jesus is leading and spreading the Word of God, rather than the cruel traitor we are used to seeing. Combining contemporary attitudes and modern slang, the song lyrics offer ironic allusions to modern life as we know it, in a new interpretation of the events of that fateful week.

This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.
