Straight from the successful West End run, Evita is set to captivate audiences across the world as it embarks on an international and UK tour from December 2017. The story of an ordinary woman’s meteoric rise to power at a time of extraordinary political unrest will open at Manchester’s Palace Theatre on 6 December, before heading to Luxembourg, United Arab Emirates, Bulgaria, Croatia and Italy, followed by a 10-week UK tour in Spring 2018.
Telling the story of Eva Perón, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Perón, Evita follows Eva’s journey, which ultimately lead her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people.
With more than 20 major awards to its credit, an Oscar winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, and featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall; Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s extraordinary musical Evita is an iconic classic not to be missed!
