Following their hit productions Shrek, Miss Saigon, Wicked and The Phantom of the Opera, Packemin Productions are thrilled to return to Riverside Theatres in February 2019 with a staggering new production of the world’s first rock musical, Jesus Christ Superstar.
A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. As the radical teachings of Jesus are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality.
The show has one of the most stirring and iconic musical theatre scores ever written, and features hit songs including I Don’t Know How to Love Him, Everything’s Alright, Jesus Christ Superstar and Gethsemane. By turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart. It guarantees to be a night in the theatre that you will never forget!
