At my first year of my second degree I wrote a paper about Jesus Christ Superstar. I’ve been loving this opera since the beginning, but some changed their minds a lot about it during the years. Did you know that Tim Rice was quoted as saying “It happens that we don’t see Christ as God but simply the right man at the right time at the right place” and some people (some traditionalists) thought it was blasphemous? Despite this, Pope Paul VI declared it was a good film and it was just a rock opera, not a theological opera 😀
One of my favourite songs is the warning of Judas to Jesus.. “be careful!” he tells him. But he won’t listen.
And after my favourite rock opera, now my favourite italian opera: pizza 😀
Be careful when you cook it… you might fall in love with it. And did you know Gethsemane (I Only Want to Say) was sang in 1970 by Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) ?
Some masterpieces always go together 😀
