The musical Jesus Christ Superstar in Verona in 2014 has been called a memorable edition, confirmed by the endless standing ovations at the end of each replica!

After making its debut on April 18 at the Sistina Theatre in Rome, Jesus Christ Superstar in 2014 has been seen by more than 40,000 spectators in a little over a month. The extraordinary success has accompanied the show in Palermo and Messina, and the same is expected to occur even in Verona, where the show has already been 'duplicated' to cope with the demand: to the initial show of Jesus Christ Superstar, Arena di Verona on 12 October 2014 at 5pm a replica at 9pm has been added.

Since 1994, the Italian Jesus Christ Superstar musical tour, written and directed by Massimo Romeo Piparo - who is very appreciated abroad for his innovative style - has racked up record numbers: four editions, over 1,000,000 viewers and more than 1,000 performances in 84 Italian cities ...

After the Jesus Christ Superstar original cast edition of 2000, which saw the late Judah Black Carl Anderson recite, who died in 2004, Piparo was able to bring on stage the other Jesus Christ Superstar tour cast star of the 1973 film: Ted Neeley who returns to the Jesus Christ Superstar Arena tour in October 2014.

Thanks to its unbeatable setting that the Arena provides, the Arena di Verona concert of Jesus Christ Superstar will be a major event for all the fans of this famous show!
