Playa de las Américas – January 16th to 20th

The rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar is coming to the Piramide de Arona in Playa de las Americas from January 16th to 20th.  This is an exceptional opportunity to see a brilliant version of the musical in English.

Today, although the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar has been performed around the world for many years, it is still loved by millions of people and the legion of fans is constantly growing.  The performance of this rock opera in Tenerife was preceded by a successful international tour under director Stanislav Moša (Czech Republic) which visited Germany, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Austria and Switzerland.

Jesus Christ Superstar is the work of the composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and libretto author Tim Rice.  It has become one of the most performed musicals in the history of the genre and today it is Webber’s most frequently produced show, along with the Phantom of the Opera, Cats and Evita.

The story is based on the New Testament and deals with what happens to Jesus Christ after he arrives in Jerusalem.  It is told from the perspective of the person who eventually betrays him, Judas Iscariot, and features the most important moments of Jesus’ last days on Earth, including the expelling of the money changers from the temple, the Last Supper and Judas’ betrayal in the Garden of Gethsemane, all the way up to the trial before Pontius Pilate, and the subsequent crucifixion of Jesus.

Jesus Christ Superstar which will be performed in English by 24 actors/singers backed by an orchestra of 12, will only be in Tenerife for five days, from January 16 to 20 2019 at the Piramide de Arona in Playa de las Américas with all performances starting at 8pm.  A generous 25 per cent discount on ticket prices is available to residents.
