Jesus Christ Superstar in Concert

This multi-talented cast of Iceland's best known singers, actors and musicians will repeat their highly acclaimed concert rendition of Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice on April 18th 2019.

Eyþór Ingi of Todmobile takes on his dream role of Jesus of Nazareth. Þór Breiðfjörð sings the part of Judas, something he has done many times before, home and abroad. This is Þór's first musical/opera/concert role since his breathtaking rendition of Valjean in Les Miserables. Ragga Gröndal brings all her talent to the role of Mary Magdelene. They are supported by singers/actors Jóhann Sigurðarson and Ólafur Egilsson and Icelandic rock stars Magni and Björn Jörundur, along with the Kór Lindakirkju choir conducted by Óskar Einarsson.

An all star band with members from Mezzoforte, Todmobile, Nýdönsk and other great Icelandic bands is headed by musical director Fridrik Karlsson of Mezzoforte.
