With more than 20 major awards to its credit, the original Broadway and West End production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical Evita comes to Singapore in February 2018, directed by legendary Broadway director Hal Prince. It will make its Asian premiere at The Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands in February 2018 as part of an international tour.
Set in Buenos Aires between 1934 and 1952, EVITA charts the rags-to-riches rise of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, from her humble beginnings as a fatherless child to ambitious actress, to the most powerful woman in Latin America, and eventually to a saint-like figure after her death from cancer at the age of 33. She had extraordinary wealth, power and status, and as the First Lady of Argentina, she won the love of her country and was ultimately heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people.
For decades, EVITA’s fairy-tale love story coupled with the tragic hand of fate, has thrilled theatre-lovers all over the world. The 1996 movie starring Madonna as Eva, Jonathan Pryce as Perón, and Antonio Banderas as Che Guevara went on to win an Oscar and three Golden Globes.
Featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, Oh What A Circus, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, this smash hit show truly promises to be THE theatrical event of the year!
