From THE BBC:
A theatre in the south Russian city of Rostov has dropped a production of Jesus Christ Superstar after protests by Orthodox Christians. A Russian company was due to stage the Andrew Lloyd Webber rock opera at the Rostov Philharmonic next month. Protesters had complained the opera projected the “wrong” image of Christ.
What on earth do they mean, “The wrong image of Christ?” In all the productions of “Jesus Christ Superstar” I’ve come across he has had long hair, a hippy beard and he’s white. How more accurate can you get?!
