Enjoy a stellar new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita, the musical based on the life of Argentinian First Lady Evita Perón. Coming to the Barbican theatre this summer!
Why You Should Watch Evita
Evita, the hit musical from Andrew Lloyd Webber, is a story of courage, meteoric rises, and the power of ambition. Raised in poverty, Evita Perón climbed her way up the social ladder all the way to becoming the high-profile wife of dictator Juan Perón. Hated, loved, disrespected, and revered, Evita acquired extraordinary wealth, power, and glory. Her patriotic addresses divided the Argentinian people whilst her charisma and ambition helped solidify her reputation as one of the world's first prominent celebrity politicians. Follow the rise and fall of Evita in this monumental show.
West End maven Jamie Lloyd has reinvented Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita for the Barbican stage and you won't want to miss this revival, which is set to run alongside Jamie Lloyd's other summer showstopper: A Doll's House starring Jessica Chastain. Fans of the musical can look forward to the show's such iconic songs as 'Oh! What A Circus', 'Don't Cry for Me Argentina', 'Buenos Aires', and 'On This Night of a Thousand Stars'. The hit musical number 'You Must Love Me' is perhaps the most recognizable with Madonna having won the Oscar for Best Original Song for her performance in the hit 1996 film, as well as the Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress in a Musical, and Best Original Song. Evita The Musical first opened in London's West End in 1978 and has been revived numerous times since then
