Jesus Christ Superstar tickets

The biblical rock opera returns

Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterpiece Jesus Christ Superstar makes a triumphant return to London this summer. Following a successful season at Regent’s Park, the epic rock opera runs at the Barbican Theatre for a limited season.

Based on the biblical story of Jesus’ final days, the musical is a witty, satirical take on religion, celebrity and the relationships between Jesus and his Disciples. Jesus Christ Superstar has proven controversial but remains a crowd-pleasing hit from Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice’s back catalogue. Its incredible, rock-infused musical numbers include "I Don't Know How to Love Him" and "Everything's Alright".

The Barbican production, which first opened at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 2016 and 2017, is directed by Timothy Sheader and features choreography from Drew McOnie.

Casting includes Matt Cardle (Strictly Ballroom) as Pilate, Robert Tripolino as Jesus, Sallay Garnett as Mary and Ricardo Afonso as Judas.

The show takes one of the most iconic stories in history and presents it with all the drama, mass appeal and melodiousness of the best Lloyd Webber and Rice collaborations. Don't miss Jesus Christ Superstar tickets when this critically acclaimed production is back in London.

An excellent modern revival of a 70s classic. The whole production felt exciting, raw and original. The cast was immensely talented, with a lot of leads possessing such powerful voices and nailing the super-high notes in the more “belty” numbers. The band was tight and the atmosphere was electric. Everyone in the theatre seemed to have the best time!

The production has transferred well from the Regents Park Open Air Theatre. The leads are excellent with some sensational voices and the production values and overall style are superb. I imagine this will come back to London once again.

This is an ingenious and modern production of Jesus Christ Superstar. I really enjoyed the staging and lighting effects. There were a few occasions where I couldn't quite make out the lyrics but I was blown away by the powerful vocals, especially the actor playing Judas.

The dancing and singing were really good, some massive vocals. The show itself was a little confusing sometimes, my wife asked a couple of times what was happening or who someone was. Would go and see it again

Loved this show! Probably the best version of JCS I’ve seen on stage. Designed as a rock concert as it should be, the set was great, amazing choreography, and the lead vocalists were so powerful and emotional. It was a stunning production. Highly recommended.

A welcome return for Jesus Christ Superstar and it works very well in the Barbican Theatre. Praise must be given to the actor playing Judas - he was simply phenomenal and brought the house down with his stunning vocals. A great set design here as well for one of Lloyd Webber's better musicals.
