Recorded in 1976 as a two-disc Rock Opera concept album, Evita was a huge musical success from its first release. The famous anthem “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” went to No. 1 in Britain and around the world.
The story of Evita tracks the journey of Eva Duarte, following her early life, her meteoric rise to power, charity work, and eventual death, aged 33. Duarte became Eva Perón, the wife of the Argentine president Juan Perón and the prototype of the mid-20th-century power blonde.
A not to be missed theatrical experience that will create memories to last a lifetime.
