Jesus Christ Superstar, Lyric Opera Chicago 13
Feb

By Open Air Theatre

Superstar Chicago

We are thrilled to announce that our production of Jesus Christ Superstar will play as part of the 2017/2018 season at the Lyric Opera in Chicago.

It will be Lyric Opera’s first rock musical, and programming it is both “a conscious choice and an important new step for the company”, said Anthony Freud (General Director, President and CEO of Lyric Opera). “We are getting more and more experienced at producing musicals… and there’s really encouraging evidence that musicals are working for us and are contributing to the bottom line. This is one of the most iconic of all musicals”.

Our core creative team, including director Timothy Sheader, choreographer Drew McOnie, designer Tom Scutt and lighting designer Lee Curran, will reimagine their production for Lyric Opera, which plays 27 April – 20 May 2018. Public booking opens in March 2017.

Following its initial sell-out run at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 2016, Jesus Christ Superstar won Best Musical in the Evening Standard Awards, and returns to conclude our 2017 season.
