Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber with libretto by Tim Rice. The musical started as a rock opera concept recording before its first staging on Broadway in 1971. The musical was first produced as an original album where the part of Jesus was sung by Ian Gillan, the lead singer of Deep Purple. The title song, "Superstar", sung by Murray Head, and "I Don't Know How to Love Him", sung by Yvonne Elliman, were both big hits.
One of the best film adaptations of a musical, with fantastic performances by Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson.
