The musical 'Jesus Christ Superstar' was met with the cold shoulder in Belarus. The decision to close the show, and present a different one, is being credited to objections by local Orthodox officials.

From the article:
Quote
Homel eparchy of Belarusian Orthodox Church has succeeded in abolition of performance of the St. Petersburg Theatre "Rock Opera," which arrived in Belarus on a tour with the rock opera "Jesus Christ – Superstar." The local authorities were requested to abolish the rock opera. The believers’ perturbation was also caused by the fact that the performance was scheduled for March 4 (the first Sunday of the Lent). The rock opera show was also disrupted in Minsk.
