Evita

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s hit musical comes to Edinburgh’s Playhouse this February 2017. The story was also made famous by the Oscar winning film starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, where it follows the life of Argentine political leader Eva Perón, the second wife of Argentinian president Juan Perón.  Set in Buenos Aires between 1934-1952, the story follows Evita's early life, rise to power, charity work, and eventual death.
