EVITA - The legendary musical

TAODS brings this iconic West End musical about the life of former Argentinean first lady Eva Peron to life at the Hippodrome with this spectacular production. With music by Andrew Lloyd Weber, lyrics and book by Tim Rice and a live show orchestra under the baton of Musical Director Helen Clarkson; this promises to be a production not to be missed.

Evita follows the story of Eva Peron, the second wife of Argentinean president Juan Peron. From a life of poverty to the First Lady of Argentina, Eva Peron was hailed as the spiritual leader of the nation. Seen as the champion of the poor, her ambition, power and glamour made her the world’s first major political celebrity, winning the adoration of the people.

Evita features a chart-topping musical score including songs such as Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, Oh What a Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and the Oscar Winning You Must Love Me. With direction by Rachel Rogers and choreography by Emma Cook, the TAODS production of Evita will ​be our first major musical for almost 30 months and we can't ​wait..!

The musical was adapted into a film in 1996, starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas. The musical first opened in the West End in London 1978 and opened on Broadway in America the following year. It has won the Tony Award and Laurence Oliver Award for Best Musical.
