Tim Rice-Andrew Lloyd Webber:

Jesus Christ Superstar

Translated by Tibor Miklós

17, 19 July 2015 Friday, Sunday 9 pm
Margaret Island Open-air Stage

(2 and a half hours, one intermission)

A performance by the National Theatre of Győr, courtesy of The Really Useful Group Ltd.,
and through the Hartai Music Agency.

Incredible as it sounds; Andrew Lloyd Webber was only twenty-two years old when, in 1970, the Palace Theatre presented his second rock opera which he co-wrote with the four years his elder and with a somewhat more serious professional background, Tim Rice. Jesus Christ Superstar was immediately a huge success, and following the world premiere in London it was staged in almost all countries. When the creators were asked about the choice of the musical’s theme, they had a very easy explanation. As they put it, they thought that the biblical account was a "great" story. In addition to the music, the work features the world's best-known story not in the usual way, but from the perspective of Judas.
