An unlikely scenario: the whole of Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar performed by one woman accompanied by a single piano. Even more unlikely when that woman is Peaches, the electro-rock provocateuse who has made sexual frankness her calling-card.

Yet this is no irreverent mash-up, of either the score or the story it tells. Wholehearted in its reverence, it's a performance that brings out Peaches' extraordinary emotional and dramatic power as she sings each of the nine principal roles. Shedding her usual in-your-face antics and provocative props, Peaches reveals her formidable vocal talents in a show that will come as a revelation to anyone who saw her film Peaches Does Herself and subsequent live gig at Brighton Dome last December.

Building on the work's own brand of subtle subversiveness, Peaches' tribute to a score she has loved since she was a teenager is a chance to see the star and the musical in an entirely new light.
