The multi award winning musical tells the story of Eva, a young woman who lifts herself from obscure, humble origins to become the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ of the Argentine people. From brave teenage escapades to the bright lights of Buenos Aires to bounding leaps up the Argentinian cultural ladder, Eva’s journey earns her many powerful allies and enemies.
Through her marriage to former Argentine dictator Juan Perón, Eva’s political vitality cements her mythic status in the country shared cultural history.
The season marks the 65th anniversary of the death of Eva Perón, with the incredible Emma Hatton (Wicked, We Will Rock You) portraying the eponymous character, and Gian Marco Schiaretti (Tarzan) as the revolutionary Che. The show features some of the most memorable songs in musical theatre history, including “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, “On This Night of a Thousand Stars”, “You Must Love Me”, and “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”.
The talented ensemble also includes Oscar Balmaseda, Sarah O’Connor, George Arvidson, Lewis Barnshaw, Jessica Ellen, Callum Fitzgerald, Kellie Gnauck, Dominic Adam Griffin, Joe McCourt, Jude Neill, Jordan Oliver, Chrissie Perkins, Oliver Slade, Matias Stegmann and Yuval Zoref.
With over 20 major awards to its name, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita is a revival that no musical theatre aficionado should dare miss.
