Russian Theater Cancels Jesus Christ Superstar Over Blasphemy Charge
"Saint Petersburg's Rock Opera company was to perform the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical - a 1970s classic that has been regularly performed in Russia - at the Philharmonic in the southern city of Rostov-on-Don on October 18. However prosecutors launched a probe after a group of local residents complained that the musical presented a distorted image of Jesus Christ." Agence France-Presse 09/29/12
