Jesus Christ Superstar (1972 Swedish cast) is an album released on Philips in 1972. The album features the Swedish cast from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's rock opera, Jesus Christ Superstar. Jesus Christ was originally performed by Peter Winsnes on the Swedish opening at the Scandinavium arena in G?teborg. On tour as well as at the Johanneshov arena in Stockholm Jesus was played by Bruno Wintzell, who also sings the part of Jesus Christ at the Swedish cast's studio recording. Among other artists were featured in the Swedish cast by their respective roles: Arne Jansson as Judas Iscariot, ?rjan Ramberg as Herod, Bernt Henziger as Pontius Pilate, and Agnetha F?ltskog as Mary Magdalene.
1The Mary Magdalene role
The Mary Magdalene role
Bj?rn Ulvaeus, Agnetha's husband at the time, had heard about the Swedish production, so he suggested that Agnetha should audition for the role of Mary Magdalene. The producers had a hard time choosing between Agnetha and Titti Sj?blom, due to the respect of Titti's mother, famous singer Alice Babs. In what was termed a compromise, Agnetha headlined in the role against Peter Winsnes as Jesus, with Sj?blom playing two nights and the matinee was performed by Adele Lipuma as Mary Magdalene. Titti Sj?blom, playing Mary Magdalene and Bruno Winzell as Jesus Christ went to perform on tour at ?rebro and G?vle, after a compromise was made. In Stockholm Agnetha F?ltskog returned as Mary Magdalene, with Bruno Winzell as Jesus. Peter Winsnes went back to the Falkoner Center and picked up his utterly successful performance in Copenhagen again. The Danish daily paper Politiken crowned him the "Super-Superstar".
The premiere was held on February 18 at The Scandinavium arena in Gothenburg and the ten performances run set an "untouchable Swedish record" playing to 74.000 people.
