The musical/rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar was created by lyricist Tim Rice and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1969. It tells the story of the last seven days of Jesus from his arrival in Jerusalem to his crucifixion. Unsure about the reaction of religious people and the Church, the producers first released an album featuring songs from the musical. Only after that did the musical premiere in London's West End and later on Broadway. Four years later, Norman Jewison made a film version of the stage musical. A newer version was directed by Nick Morris in 2000.
The musical first premiered in Czech Republic in 1994 in Theatre Spirála. The secon premiere took place in 2010 in Karlín Theatre and has been played ever since.
