What's it all about?

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Evita returns to the West End for a strictly limited season to commemorate 65 years since the passing of Eva Perón. Produced by Bill Kenwright, this production was last seen at the Dominion Theatre in 2015 and this time takes up residence at the Phoenix Theatre. A score featuring some of musical theatre’s most famous numbers, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Another Suitcase in Another Hall and the Oscar-winning You Must Love Me, Evita is a musical masterpiece telling the story of Argentina’s most celebrated and adored First Lady, from her humble beginnings to her lasting legacy as ‘spiritual leader of the nation’.

What's the story?

The rags-to-riches story of Eva Duarte is brought to life in this multi-award winning musical. Born into a humble background, the lights of Buenos Aires enticed Eva to rise above her origins. The fame hungry beauty clawed her way up from radio star, to singer, to actress and finally to wife of the Argentinian President, Juan Perón. Adored by the people, loathed by the aristocracy, Eva believed the voice of the people could not be denied and this controversial, enigmatic figure made that voice heard, changing the political climate of the country, right up until her premature passing at the age of 33. Her light shone, and her legacy still lives today, 65 years later.

Who's in it?

Emma Hatton (Wicked, We Will Rock You) takes on the iconic role of Eva, having recently played the role to critical acclaim on the UK tour. Italian performer Gian Marco Schiaretti makes his West End debut in the role of Che.

Joining them are 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.

Did You Know?

Evita wasn't the first musical that composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice collaborated on. The dynamic duo had initially hit it off after Rice wrote Lloyd Webber a very sixties letter offering himself as a 'with-it' writer. Prior to the show's original West End opening night in 1978, the pair had worked on three other musicals: The Likes Of Us, Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Jesus Christ Superstar.

The idea for Evita came to the lyricist when he heard a radio play in 1972 based on the life of Eva Peron. The show was made into a popular film musical by director Alan Parker in 1996, with Madonna in the title role. The songstress went on to win Best Actress in a Musical Golden Globe for her contribution. The film adaptation featured changes to Lloyd Webber's original score. The now-famous Act 2 song You Must Love Me was written specifically for the film and was only added to the stage score after the film was released.
