Evita, the crowning dramatic achievement of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice will be presented at the Bruce Mason Theatre from 28 May until 18 June 2016. After a spectacular season in Wellington this iconic musical is set to dazzle, bringing the true story of Eva Peron to life with over 40 top performers and spectacular new staging. An incredible performance that you'll not want to miss...
Evita charts the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’. Eva Peron won international acclaim and adoration from her own people as a champion of the poor, while glamour, power and greed made her the world’s first major political celebrity.
Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself. Featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall.
From the New Zealand producers of Mamma Mia! Anything Goes,42nd Street and Phantom of the Opera, see the iconic Evita like you’ve never seen it before in a stunning new design. The wonderful storytelling of Evita will capture Auckland for a strictly limited season.
