Jesus Christ Superstar - Paul Green Rock Academy

Jesus Christ event.jpg

Jesus Christ Superstar, widely considered the first true rock opera, was released as a double album in 1970 with music by the legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Grammy, Tony, Academy, and Emmy award-winner Tim Rice.  Originally recorded as a concept album, it tells the story of the last week of Jesus’s life from his entrance into Jerusalem to his crucifixion.

The original album featured Ian Gillan (vocalist Deep Purple) as Jesus, Murray Head (“One Night in Bangkok”) as Judas, and Yvonne Elliman (“If I Can’t Have You”) as Mary Magdalene.  It set the stage for the highly acclaimed Tony Award-nominated Broadway production, a feature film, countless national and international stage performances, while remaining iconic in its original form.

This show is a celebration of that original 1970 double album, performed by the incredible Master Program students of Paul Green Rock Academy, and is sure to be loved all JCS fans... especially those who hold the original album as the one true JCS!
