Andrew Lloyd Webber’s extraordinary musical story of an ordinary women’s meteoric rise to power captivates West End audiences in the 65 year anniversary of the death of Eva Perón.

Telling the story of Eva, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Perón, Evita follows the journey which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people, and features songs such as Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night Of A Thousand Stars, and You Must Love Me.

The enigmatic figure oversaw a meteoric rise from humble beginnings to vast wealth and power at a time of political turbulence, and will be portrayed by one of musical theatre’s most exciting young leading ladies Emma Hatton, who has performed the lead role of Elphaba in the West End production of Wicked. Leading Italian performer Gian Marco Schiaretti (Tarzan, Stuttgart) plays the revolutionary Che, the voice of the Argentine people.

With more than 20 major awards to its credit, and an Oscar winning film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita is an iconic story.
