Evita - 1978 - West End

Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, Eva Peron was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. 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.
