Following its smash hit runs in London, Bill Kenwright’s production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Evita returns to Birmingham Hippodrome to thrill audiences again.
Telling the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, Evita follows Eva’s journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary iconic status which ultimately lead to her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people.
Starring two of musical theatre’s most outstanding leading performers: Madalena Alberto returns to the role of Eva, a role she received critical acclaim for in the 2014 West End revival. Other theatre credits include the role of Piaf at the Curve Theatre and Fantine in the 25th Anniversary production of Les Miserables. Joining her in the role of Che, fresh from the recent West End production, is Gian Marco Sciaretti, who also played the title role in Disney’s production of Tarzan.
The production features some of the most iconic songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars and Another Suitcase in Another Hall.
