The show is described by the Festival as: "The zeal with which Christ’s followers are hailing him as the Son of God has become a source of dismay to his disciple Judas Iscariot. Fearing that this tide of religious fervour will provoke brutal repression by the occupying Romans, Judas must make his fateful choice between faith and betrayal. The greatest story ever told – in a groundbreaking rock opera that reinvented musical theatre for the modern age."
