Oldřich Smysl – Play Jesus!
When mentioning Jesus Christ Superstar, majority of people automatically reference a big musical production involving numerous actors and dancers. In a year, when we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Norman Jewison film version, Meeting Brno brings to you a loose adaptation of the legendary musical by one man and a piano.

For Oldřich Smysl it might seem that Jesus Christ Superstar has been a constant presence throughout his whole life so far. He started off as Jesus of Nazareth in the age of sixteen, still a high school student of Gymnázium in Olomouc-Hejčín. After finishing his studies in
the Janáček Academy of Performing Arts, he portrayed the title role in the production of Jesus Christ Superstar by Městské divadlo Brno, which subsequently became his home stage. Still faithful to the Hejčín ensemble, where he once started, he toured with a concert
version of Jesus throughout Europe. Now he brings an intimate personal homage to this substantial work of art and offers his own interpretational variation of the Passion theme in original English version.
