Jesus Christ Superstar, originally produced by London's Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, is a rock opera based on the Passion of Christ, the Gospel account of what happened in the day leading up to Jesus’ death. Some of the most recognisable songs from the musical include ‘I Don’t Know How to Love Him’, ‘Gethsemane’ and ‘Superstar’.

It was written as a concept album and then premiered on Broadway in 1971 critical and commercial success. Its first run lasted eight years, becoming the longest-running musical in West End history at that time. The musical celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2012 and was commemorated in the ITV reality competition, which led to the selection of Ben Forster as Jesus in an arena tour of the show.
