Orchestral Score for Jesus Christ Superstar

An orchestral score contains lines of music for every instrument and each vocal line. The orchestral score is used by the Musical Supervisor and Musical Director to annotate important musical choices and would be passed to subsequent musical directors to allow the production to be revived in exactly the same form.

In 'I Don't Know How to Love Him' notice the pause symbol. This suggests that the conductor can hold the notes longer than originally written, giving pathos to the end of one of the show's biggest hits. The score has been regularly used in the orchestra pit. The red ink on the pages relating to Christ's trial before Pilate and flogging are likely to be the result of fake blood on stage.
