WATCH: Jesus Christ Superstar brings national tour to Leeds Grand Theatre

Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock opera comes to West Yorkshire — watch the trailer here

Watch out Leeds, a superstar's in town.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's ground-breaking rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar opens at the Grand Theatre tonight to explore one of the world's oldest stories.

Since its 1971 debut, the show has wowed audiences around the world, breaking the boundaries of musical theatre as it recounts the last seven days of Jesus' life — through the eyes of the man who betrayed him.

Broadway and West End star Glenn Carter returns as Jesus, a role he has played both in theatres and in film, with Australian performed Tim Rogers as Judas Escariot.

X Factor finalist Rachel Adedeji, direct from the European tour of Thriller Live , is Mary Magdelene in what promises to be an explosive show.

Its music has stood the test of time, with popular songs including I Don’t Know How to Love Him , Everything’s Alright , Gethsemane and Superstar as powerful today as they were when the show first ran more than 40 years ago.

Jesus Christ Superstar is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Monday July 6 to Saturday July 11.

Tickets cost £18.50-£40 — book online or call the Box Office on 0844 848 2700.
