Conductor score from Palace Theatre, London

Conductor score

 

Full orchestral score for Jesus Christ Superstar,
Palace Theatre, 9 August 1972

 In the storage rooms of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, is museum piece S.102-1981 filed. It’s a conductor score of Jesus Christ Superstar and this score is marked up for performance, with notes from the Musical Director on alterations made during rehearsals. The red spots on it are presumably fake blood, that indicates the score is actually used in a performance of the Palace Theatre. I was lucky enough to see the performance twice in the Palace Theatre in the seventies.

  1. I hope you will put the DVD in the recorder or the CD in the player soon Abby.
    I recently bought the LP version now my daughter has an “old” turntable again…
