Lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

The multi award-winning production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar is back. Playing just 60 performances at the Barbican following two sell-out seasons at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, this "gorgeous, thrilling, heavenly musical" (Guardian) is "an almighty revelation" (Daily Telegraph).

Jesus Christ Superstar previously played two sell-out seasons at the Open Air Theatre before transferring to the Lyric Opera of Chicago in 2018. It will embark on a North American tour from October.

The new cast of Jesus Christ Superstar includes Robert Tripolino and Ricardo Afonso in the iconic roles of Jesus and Judas, with Sallay Garnett as Mary. Matt Cardle plays the role of Pilate, with Cavin Cornwall and Nathan Amzi as Caiaphas and Annas. 

Please note that Matt Cardle will not appear on Friday 12 July, Saturday 13 July (evening), Tuesday 30 July and Wednesday 31 July. 

Timothy Sheader caps a fine season with an excellent production

The real find is relative newcomer (Tyrone) Huntley as Judas: his soulful howl is the most electrifying instrument in this feverishly full throttle resurrection of a classic show

A gritty new Jesus Christ Superstar that might just be the finest musical this venue has yet produced

An unexpected and considerable pleasure that really rocks
The Guardian

A mass delirium of amplified agony and ecstasy sets in, as the beautifully lit spectacle of our bloodied saviour in his death-throes combines with the counterpointed uplift of the title number
Daily Telegraph

Each song is sung with such feeling that the soul of the piece, so volatile in tempo, comes roaring through
Daily Telegraph

At the moment the end came, a gust of wind blew across Regent’s Park and it was as if the trees themselves were sighing
Daily Mail

A gorgeous, thrilling, heavenly musical
The Guardian

A perfect cocktail of gritty drama and camp splendour

Every single member of the London-styled cast is spectacular
