The rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar opened on Broadway in 1971. Written by the classic partnership Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, it tells the story of the last week of Jesus’ life. It ran for two years to mixed reviews and a fair bit of controversy, which perhaps is not surprising given the subject matter. Despite this, it opened in the West End in 1972, and a movie version was released in 1973.
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
