Jesus Christ Superstar

  • Governors State University 1 University Parkway University Park, IL United States (map)

 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. Witness the last seven days of Christ as seen through the eyes of Judas Iscariot in this 1970 rock opera. Concerned that Jesus' followers will be perceived as a threat to the occupying Roman Empire, Judas betrays Jesus with a kiss at the Garden of Gethsemane for 30 pieces of silver. Jesus is arrested and condemned to death on the cross.
