Jesus Christ Superstar Tickets

Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic musical transfers to the Barbican Theatre for a limited season. Directed by Timothy Sheader, this big, bold, critically acclaimed production first wowed audiences at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 2016 and 2017.

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.
